Feathertop, a fountain of light
Its downy, almost pure white inflorescences make Pennisetum villosum a remarkable grass for its intense luminosity.
A choice plant for the edge of a sunny border or it can be equally magnificent in a pot.
We will forgive its lack of hardiness as it is easy to grow in containers, which can be protected against the rigours of winter. In a temperate, maritime climate it can be planted as a perennial grass in the ground.
A good cut flower much admired by florists. Grow in the sun in ordinary, permeable, soft soil. Hardiness: - 7°C.
