This snazzy new fountain grass has become our favorite redhead. We were astounded to see stylish red-hued bottlebrush plumes, a full eight inches long, emerge in midsummer. The fine-textured blooms extend just above its dark green leaves; foliage forms a rounded, arching habit that brings texture and shape to mixed borders and perennial plantings. Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Red Head’ was selected by Intrinsic Perennial Gardens from seedlings of Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘National Arboretum’. When planted in masses, Red Head Fountain Grass creates a dramatic wave of color in the landscape, especially when the wind blows.
