Fountain Grass is one of the most popular grasses. This selection is a miniature version forming an upright clump of narrow, green leaves bearing small, tufted, cream flower plumes in late summer. The leaves show red colour in summer but by fall are completely red, lasting until frost. Excellent in containers and the front of the border, especially when mass planted. Plants provide interest in the winter garden. Clumps may be easily divided in spring. Old foliage should be cut back to the ground in March. Drought tolerant once established. Sport of ‘Little Bunny'.
