Pennisetum alopecuroides, otherwise known as Dwarf Fountain Grass is an ornamental grass that grows to about 2' tall and are clump-forming. In late summer, buff-colored flower heads pop up in profusion on 1' spikes. The graceful fountain-like plumes slowly change color from buff to soft pinks and light-colored maroons. One to three plants are effective in small gardens as an accent, and in larger areas, mass plantings are stunning. When mass planting, leave at least 3 feet between plants.
