The Q&A Archives: Orn. Grass

Question: I have three Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum's'.
All three are healthy and vibrant, but one them has no plumes. Is their anyway to promote the grass to produce plumes?
Thank You


Answer: The plumes are the grass's way of flowering and setting seeds. Each plant has to reach maturity before sending up plumes so you'll just have to be patient - each grows at its own rate.
