Pennisetum setaceum produces long, showy pink blooms in spring, which flower continually all season. This beautiful ornamental grass grows in fountain shape with thin, green foliage to three feet. Plumes bring the height to four feet. Plant Pennisetum setaceum in mixed annual borders, or use as the main feature in decorative containers. Tender Fountain Grass can take heat and humidity with ease and it is drought tolerant once established. It grows best in full sun with well-drained, fertile soil, but can tolerate a wide variety of growing conditions including acidic or alkaline soils. Its plumes can also be used in flower arrangements. Treat Tender Fountain Grass as a fast-growing annual grass outside of its hardiness zones.
