Pennisetum orientale 'Karley Rose' PP #12,909


'Karley Rose' Fountain grass is a perfect choice to add summer color to your landscape. The green grassy mounds produce smokey rose purple flower plumes late summer into fall. This plant is great for mass plantings, in erosion control areas or as accents in a diversely planted landscape.

Joseph's Take

I prefer to plant grasses in the spring. I like to give them a season to grow lots before cold weather. I prefer grasses that are low growing and generally plant them in large groups on steep hills. Sometimes I can use grasses as an accent near a sidewalk, good companions are Pugster Butterfly Bushes. I love when they are blooming in the fall as their color at sunrise and sunset is really special.
