Sizing guide
Pennisetum alopecuroides, commonly known as Fountain Grass, thrives in Australia's diverse climates. To cultivate it, choose a well-drained location with full sun to partial shade.
Plant in spring or early summer, ensuring the soil is rich and amended with organic matter. Water regularly until established, then allow the soil to dry between waterings. Prefers to be pruned back hard in late winter to help promote early spring growth. 
This warm-season grass reaches a mature height of 2 to 3 feet (60-90 cm) with arching, fountain-like plumes that can add a graceful touch to landscapes. It's adaptable to various soil types and is relatively low-maintenance, requiring occasional pruning to rejuvenate growth.
Pennisetum alopecuroides is an excellent choice for gardens, borders, and landscaping projects across Australia, bringing ornamental charm and resilience to the outdoor space.
