(Purple Fountain Grass) GRACEFUL GRASSES® Pennisetum ‘Rubrum’ is an outstanding ANNUAL fountain grass with thin reddish-purple foliage. The magnificent, rosy-pink, bottlebrush plumes erupt from the dark tropical foliage from early summer until frost! This versatile grass looks spectacular in nearly any setting – especially in large combination planters! Planting GRACEFUL GRASSES® ‘Rubrum’ in-between perennials and shrubs is an excellent way to add some pizzazz to your landscape. Don’t worry about having to replant it every year; it is worth it! ‘Rubrum’ stands about 30″ to 36″ tall and waves in the wind. Trim back in the spring to leave winter interest in your landscape.

    My very favorite grass….except it is not perennial where I live. The essence of grace and beauty….if only it were hardier.
