Pennisetum Macrourum

£0.00 incl tax

Could have been entered in the easy self seeder category because it does seed around - not that it needs to because it spreads quickly via underground shoots - invasive here.

This is the easiest and hardiest of all the pennisetums and needs old dead grass leaves raking out to look at it's best but when it flowers at the end of the year it explodes firework seed heads up to 6 feet tall that look spectacular - very architectural.

Has proved completely hardy here and tolerates any condition but obviously best suited full sun and dry. Originally obtained from two sources and have kept the better variety which holds on to it's seed heads all autumn/winter.
