Pennisetum Alopecuroides Hameln, a dwarf fountain grass, is a versatile landscaping accent plant which will bring late-season interest to your garden, large or small! This low-growing fountain grass starts the season off as an unobtrusive clump of narrow, arching green leaves, emerging in late May and providing cover for the fading foliage of spring-blooming bulbs such as daffodils. By the end of summer, the deep green leaves of Pennisetum Alopecuroides Hameln are complemented by showy spikes of fluffy pinkish flowers whose seed heads will last into early winter. The foliage turns golden yellow in autumn and will remain throughout the winter, adding visual interest.  
Pennisetum Alopecuroides Hameln is one of the hardiest of the fountain grasses, able to survive winters in most of the UK. In 2 to 5 years it will grow into a clump from 50 cm – 1 metre high and across. The yellowed leaves should be cut back to the ground in late winter or early spring to make way for the new season’s leaves. If planting a group of Pennisetum Alopecuroides Hameln, space the plants from 50 to 75 cm apart. 
Fountain Grass Hameln should be planted in a sheltered exposure, facing south or west in full sun. It needs well-drained sand, chalk or loam soil, but will tolerate a wide ph range. Once the plants are established, they will be very drought-tolerant, and are pest and disease free, making Pennisetum Alopecuroides Hameln an ideal low-maintenance choice for your garden!
There are many spots in your garden where Pennisetum Alopecuroides Hameln will fit right in! It is a great choice for container planting, paired with spring-blooming bulbs which will disappear into the emerging foliage of the Fountain Grass Hameln in late spring. It will provide summer, autumn and winter interest on a patio, balcony or rooftop terrace. In a mixed border, its green leaves in summer will provide a pleasant backdrop for summer flowers, and then its own flowers and autumn and winter foliage will carry through until the next spring. A mass planting of Fountain Grass Hameln on a larger property can provide a good ground cover and put on a stunning display in summer and autumn. 
Pennisetum Alopecuroides Hameln will bring trouble free beauty to your garden with its striking flowers and colourful autumn and winter foliage. Its small size ensures that it can find a place in any garden, whether formal or country cottage! More ornamental grasses...
