Pennisetum alopecuroides 'PAV300'

Pennstripe™ Pennisetum alopecuroides PAV300, is a striking compact native grass ideally suited to home gardens and small yards. In autumn it flowers with foxtail like seed heads which are golden to cream in colour. Unlike the exotic Pennisetum seteceum, Pennstripe to date has never produced viable seed making it a safe choice for those concerned for the environment. Pennstripe makes a real statement when mass planted. It will also look good as a specimen plant in the garden or in large decorative pots.
