Description


Gloriously golden, colour-changing grass The plants in this species are commonly known as 'fountain grasses'. This nickname celebrates the arching flower spikes which resemble water spraying from a fountain. Your Pennisetum 'Lumen Gold' reveals a compact mound of fine, bright gold foliage in spring. In summer, the grass-like leaves turn lime-yellow, before deepening to a golden-orange in autumn. A mass of delicate, bottlebrush plumes rise above the foliage between August and October. These creamy-brown spikes add texture to flower arrangements as either fresh or dried cuttings. Your adaptable and drought-tolerant semi-evergreen provides excellent ground cover as it naturalises at the back of a garden bed. Equally, your Pennisetum's architectural presence enhances a rockery garden or a patio container. A fully or partially sunny spot with well-drained soil best suits this hardy plant. Your pennisetum will reach a maximum height and spread of 45cm by 60cm.
