Answer: Pennisetum orientale is a clumping ornamental grass producing pinkish plumes that fade to light brown at maturity. Plants grow about 1 1/2' tall, so a companion plant should be slightly lower or slightly higher than your Pennisetum. Some considerations include the brightly colored Tithonia, Liatris, Cosmos or Armeria. Aster frikartii or Scabiosa are also attractive when mixed with Pennisetum. There are so many choices! Good luck with your planter!
