Why Purple Fountain Grass?
Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum') is a regal addition to any landscape. It packs a one-two punch - first, with its purplish, burgundy-red foliage; second, by producing fluffy, purple flower spikes in the heat of summer.
And if you enjoy attracting birds to your garden, this gem of a plant is also a botanical bird feeder – the purple plumed flowers are a natural source of seeds that are irresistible to birds!

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Purple Fountain in an area with full sun (about 6 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil. Once you've chosen your location, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate your plant's root ball, place your plant, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
You can also plant your grass in a pot. If you choose to do so, select a container that's about twice as large as your plant's shipped container (and ensure it has drainage holes), use organic soil mix, place your plant, and fill the pot with soil, leaving about 2 inches free at the top. Finally, water your newly-potted plant to settle the soil.
2. Watering: When the top of the soil feels dry down to about 2 or 3 inches, water your Purple Fountain.
Other than regular watering if your area does not receive consistent rainfall, Purple Grass requires very little additional maintenance.
