Description Fine Print
 
Pennisetum 'Red Head' is a big and bold fountain grass beginning its flower display in mid summer, earlier than other cultivars. The extra large plumes measure up to 10 inches long and three inches wide, have tones of smoky pink and purple, and are produced in quantity arching out from the broad, green, graceful mound of foliage. Leaves turn gold and orange in the fall then to join the flowers in buff tones for good winter interest.
