Pennisetum setaceum rubrum, or Purple Fountain Grass, is a graceful ornamental grass, with lovely soft, flowing, purple-tinted foliage. From early summer masses of rich purple coloured flower plumes are displayed. This exotic plant looks best when given space to sway and move in the breeze, making a relaxing sound. Fertilise with a slow release once a year in spring. Prune back every few years to encourage new growth.

Soil: Moist, fertile loams to clay loams preferring good drainage but tolerating poor drainage.
Conditions: Best foliage colour is seen in full sun but the plant will accept partly shaded sites. Drought, coastal, humid, wind and mildly frost tolerant.
Size: Height 1.5m x width 1.5m
