Black Fountain Grass is noteworthy for its dark, deluxe, bottlebrush plumes. The five-inch flowers look purple or brown-black, depending on how the light hits them. Blooms can be abundant. They are held above wide, green, arching foliage, in the same fountain shape common to the species. However, Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Moudry’ has a more luxuriant appearance because of its plush blooms and wide blades. This ornamental grass will reseed (seedlings are not true to type). Unwanted seedlings should be plucked from the landscape.
