Add an ornamental grass to an oriental themed garden or border with Pennisetum alopecuroides, a deciduous perennial with arching clumps of green foliage and flowers which last well into winter. Truly bursting to life as summer draws to a close, Pennisetum alopecuroides produces highly distinctive cylindrical purple flower heads, coated with fine purple bristles.

Growing in most types of well-drained soil, Pennisetum alopecuroides prefers an area with minimal shade, and may require some protection against very harsh frosts.
