Description: Pennisetum ‘Rubrum’ (Red Fountain Grass) – A clumping semi-evergreen grass 4-5+ feet tall with dark burgundy-red foliage and red plumes that rise above the foliage. This grass seems to be completely evergreen (red) in frost free zones, but goes deciduous with frost and it is root hardy to 20 degree F. Plant in full sun and water sparingly to control height. Looks best if it is cut back in late winter to expose new foliage. This clone rarely seeds out. Drought and heat resistant.
