(Fountain Grass) Pennisetum Fireworks is a refreshing new look to an old time favorite ornamental grass! Fireworks is the first variegated purple fountain grass. Each leaf includes various shades of pink, burgundy and purple with a little white thrown in for contrast. Since Fireworks is a sport of Pennisetum Rubrum, it will also look great as a centerpiece in combination containers. In the garden or landscape, plant it with red or purple plants such as Pennisetum Princess.

Eye Catching Review by Diane | Zone: 7a
The most interesting kind of grass I have ever seen. It is so eye-catching and both beautiful in summer and again in the fall. Very much worth the money. (Posted on 3/19/2010)
