Buy Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln' fountain grass: A pretty, compact grass for small gardens

This grass dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: light, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (will need winter protection in cold areas)

    A charming perennial grass that forms a compact, low mound and produces long-lasting, soft, pinkish, brush-like flowers in late summer that resemble squirrel tails. The bright green leaves turn yellow in autumn and then brown throughout winter. It’s a fairly undistinguished plant until the flowers appear, so use it alongside spring bulbs or early-flowering perennials.

  • Garden care: A generous layer of mulch in autumn will help keep the roots warmer in winter. Prune back the previous years growth each spring.
