Pennisetum alopecuroides "Foxtrot" (Giant Fountain Grass"
"Foxtrot" is a Kurt Bluemel introduction formerly known as "Japonicum." It grows to four feet tall, (four feet wide) and to five feet wide with its pink-tinged foxtail blooms that rest atop slender stems in mid-summer. In fall, "Foxtrot" takes on a lovely golden hue. It is strong and vigorous and is as at home around water as it in dry soil. And that's not all: it has a lovely movement with the slightest bit of breeze. Gallons. Zones 5-9.
