A charming trio of soft sophisticationFluffy, brush-like, flowers form atop gracefully arching stems from summer to autumn - adding often much needed movement and a soft, gentle ambience. Foliage is deep green in summer, turning golden then buff over winter as temperatures cool and light softens. The variegated leaves of 'Little Honey' turn yellow orange in autumn. We adore seeing these distinctive grasses swaying in the breeze, illuminated by low, warm autumn light. Feathery Pennisetum are drought tolerant in borders and containers, preferring to be grown in well-drained soil in a sunny spot. All are half-hardy with an RHS rating of H3, so give a generous mulch for extra winter protection.Your Feathery Pennisetum collection comprises; alpecuroides' Hameln' AGM, height and spread 1m, alpecuroides 'Red Head' AGM, height 80cm and spread 60cm, and alpecuroides 'Little Honey', height and spread 30cm.
