Tray Price: $37.44

5 tray(s)

Purple fountain grass is a popular, fast growing, clumping ornamental grass. Under high light conditions, it has purple upright foliage with gracefully arching purple plumes summer thru fall. ‘Rubrum’ is especially dramatic when planted in the landscape in clusters or as mass plantings and also makes a versatile container plant either planted alone or in combination with other plants.  Its plumes are a favorite for fresh or dried arrangements.

Our Pennisetum ‘Rubrum’ are grown in 72 cell trays and planted directly from our own tissue culture laboratory virus tested stock.  We do not sell divisions.  If you are currently growing ‘Rubrum’ from divisions, we urge you to compare. You will see improved performance and sell through.

On arrival you can expect our liners to be healthy, full and vigorous.  Many growers finish a gallon pot in as little as 8 to 10 weeks.
