Pennisetum Alopecuriodes 'Hameln' is a striking ornamental Fountain grass that produces strong green stems topped with pink cloud-like flowers that bloom from June through to August. A wonderful addition to any garden for adding texture and depth to garden borders, they can also be planted in potting containers where their compact habit will reach a mature height of 90cm. We recommend planting in partially shaded or sunny locations in moist, fertile soil where they will flourish. 9cm pot plants supplied.
|Plant in well dug prepared soil, and add a little manure or organic matter if possible.
