Sizing guide
A clumping, perennial grass with long feathery flowers in summer and autumn. Hardy in most soil types and full sun, 
Pennisetum setaceum, commonly known as Swamp Foxtail or Fountain Grass, is an ornamental grass that thrives in various climates, including Australia.
To grow it successfully, plant in well-drained soil with full sunlight. Regular watering promotes optimal growth, and it can tolerate moist conditions, making it suitable for swampy areas. This grass reaches a mature height of .75 to 1.5 meters, forming dense clumps with slender, arching leaves.
In Australia, it is valued for its attractive feathery flower heads that emerge in summer, changing from green to a fluffy pinkish or purple hue. Due to its invasive nature, it's essential to manage and contain its growth to prevent spreading into natural ecosystems.
