Pennisetum thunbergii 'Red Buttons'

Fountain grass

A dainty and decorative grass producing many fluffy little bunny tails in varying shades of dark red. 

Very cute, it looks great in a gravel garden or amongst colourful annuals. 

As with all pennisetum they need very well drained soil and are regarded as tender, that said we grow this outdoors in a sheltered spot and it has survived three winters.
