Toby Says

An elegant fountain grass, with chameleon qualities as the flowers turn from feathery-white to a rich mushroom-pink and finally bleach to bone in late autumn and winter. I love this grass with Helenium 'Sahins Extra Early' and the blue globe thistles of echinops.

Early-flowering form of pennisetum with flowers that dry and hold right through winter. Shoulder-high grass with furry caterpillar-like flowers in late summer. Looks beautiful backlit by the sun, ideal mid-border with prairie-style flowers. Fully hardy.
