Dwarf Fountain Grass
Ornamental grasses add a simple beauty to the landscape. Some provide attractive seed heads as an added bonus. Dwarf fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) makes an attractive clumping grass that at 2-1/2 feet tall and wide is compact enough for many landscape locations. In fall, white fluffy seed heads appear to decorate the mounded plants. Fountain grass needs moist soil and plenty of sunlight.
