Grass, Dwarf Hameln

Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln'

Hameln, also ‘Fountain Grass’, is a small perennial ornamental grass with a mounded growth habit that makes it ideal for small borders, mass plantings, and erosion control.  The rich green leaves turn golden yellow in fall when green-white flower plumes appear and persist until the first freeze. 


Requires well drained soils, and will suffer if left in areas with standing water. It is not required, however it’s recommended to cut back all dead foliage before spring solely for aesthetic reasons.
