Pennisetum Alopecuroides < 甜象草 Tian Xiang Cao >
Common Name: Sweet Elephant Grass, Fountain Grass, Chinese Pennisetum, Dwarf Fountain Grass, Foxtail Fountain Grass, Swamp Foxtail Grass
Family: Poaceae
Binomial name: Pennisetum Alopecuroides

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soil in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. Tolerates part shade, but may not flower in too much shade. Cut foliage to the ground in late winter before new shoots appear. Best propagated by division in spring. Although Pennisetum often reseeds, it should be noted that this cultivar will not come true from seed. This fountain grass features arching, deep green foliage in an upright clump typically growing to 24" tall. Leaves are deep green in summer, changing to orange-bronze in fall and eventually to beige in late fall. Foliage usually remains attractive throughout the winter. Showy, silvery to pinkish-white, wheat-like flower spikes arch outward from the clump in late summer like water spraying from a fountain. Flower spikes turn brownish as the seed forms, and spikes persist until late fall or early winter before shattering. 'Hameln' is similar to the species, except the flower spikes of this cultivar are shorter and the plants are more compact.
