Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Red Head' is a clump-forming grass with narrow, green leaves to 60cm, turning gold in autumn and buff in winter. Smoky, dark red, bottlebrush flowers are produced in mid to late summer, turning brown in autumn and often lasting through winter.

NBVery similar to the popular variety ' Black Beauty' but with a shimmer of rufus red this makes a worthy alternative.

Grow in a light, moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. May need winter protection in colder areas.

Remove dead foliage and old flowered stems in early spring.

Foliage: Deciduous

Height: 0.5-1 metres in 2-5 years
