Grows Best In: Sun to Part Sun

Looking for a beautiful planter centrepiece or focal point plant? Try growing a variety of pennisetum, commonly called Fountain Grass.

Many gardeners are familiar with Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum a. 'Rubrum') but how about one of the Royal collection? These varieties boast rich, dark purple/ bronze foliage in varying heights to suit any landscape situation or planter arrangement. They are an annual grass that thrives in the heat, becoming darker and more regal in colour as summer progresses.

Choose from:
  • 'First Knight' (Black Knight') - A noble stand of the deepest, darkest purple of all.  Thrusting very upright in the centre and arching around the edges, reaching 4+ feet tall.
  • 'Prince' - Dappled blades grow ever-deeper purple, unlike many that fade in summer heat.  Fuller, faster growth than other purple grasses, reaching 5 to 6 feet in height.
  • 'Regal Princess' - A more petite, lady-like form of 'Prince' with deep purple colour and excellent form, reaching 3 to 4 feet in height.
  • 'Fireworks' - This is a show-stopper Pennisetum from the Celebration series. A spectacular sport with tonnes of flair! Multi-coloured variegated foliage with burgundy mid-veins and hot pink margins. This stunning little beauty will reach 2 to 3 feet in height.
