This one here to my left is called a Pennisetum Orientale. Again, this is probably my favorite, well it is my favorite Pennisetum Grass to use.
Reason being is it doesn’t get very large. This plant here when it’s full grown might be about two and ½ feet tall when it’s full grown and about one foot around.
These work great around rock outcroppings. It’s kind of hard to see the seed heads, but these have a pink hue to them. So they look really nice in the fall time, these grasses do.
These go dormant in the wintertime, so these will die down, all the way to the ground. But they look really nice to leave them brown, for the holiday season, in October.
These work really well if you have water restrictions because right now we are down to two days a week in Modesto, and everywhere we have these plants, they’re doing great. They’re just watered two days a week, and they’re doing fantastic.
