Pennisetum Setaceum Fireworks is commonly known as Fountain Grass because of its arching leaves. This pink ornamental grass is spectacular with its bright red foliage and tall, fluffy flower heads. It is a real architectural delight. This variety is low growing and is a half hardy perennial. Pennisetum Setaceum Fireworks enjoys being planted in full sun. 

The variegated burgundy foliage is at its most striking when planted in a sunny spot and well-drained soil. Easy to grow and care for, this deciduous ornamental grass thrives in pots and containers as well. Forming a mound of narrow, arched foliage striped with red, pink and green, this variegated variety of Fountain Grass stays fairly compact even when fully mature. With a moderate growth rate, this colourful cultivar grows to be around 1 to 1.5 metres high and 50 centimetres to 1 metres wide. 

Fountain Grasses work well in containers for patios and roof gardens as they don’t spread or grow too much. The vivid, colourful foliage will brighten up your balcony or accentuate your garden’s sitting area, and the pink foxtail flowers are bound the be the center of the attention as the summer comes to end. 

In case you choose to plant Pennisetum Setaceum Fireworks in your garden, combine it with low-growing, flowering shrubs for a dramatic, colourful display, or green ornamental grasses for an elegant, contrasting border.

Although Pennisetum Setaceum Fireworks is hardy in Britain and Ireland, this deciduous grass won’t tolerate frost. To prevent the damage from the low temperatures, cut back the foliage during the winter, of if you’re growing your Fountain Grass in a container, move it to an unheated glasshouse or a basement window.

When it comes to care, this spectacular grass is quite low-maintenance. It’s not invasive and it does not need extensive pruning to keep its graceful shape.

Pennisetum Setaceum Fireworks is dormant during the winter months. It needs to be cut back at winter or the start of spring, and will start to grow again in spring.
