Chinese fountain grass Pennisetum 'Hameln' white

Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln'
Cheerful and colourful
A colourful addition to your autumn garden. The fountain grass 'Hameln' (Pennisetum alopecuroides) is best in a group as a ground cover, but it also looks great on its own in a beautiful flower pot. In summer the Pennisetum blooms with light brown to light pink flower spikes. They bloom well into winter. And fade to silver-white. The leaves turn from green to greenish yellow in autumn. A happy spectacle in the garden! You can plant the fountain grass all year round. Except in frost.
The plant is moderately winter-hardy. So in the autumn apply a mulch layer so that the roots do not freeze. In the spring, prune the faded flower spikes and leaves back to 10 cm above the ground. Plant the Pennisetum in a nice spot in full sun. Give it extra water during dry periods.

If you buy perennials in autumn they might not look quite as beautiful as usual, because autumn is when they lose their leaves. The big benefit of planting perennials in autumn is that by spring they will be well rooted in the garden and ready to burst into growth.
