Fountain grass is a hugely popular ornamental grass, but sometimes it is just too big for the location you have, or for the size of your garden. For that there is Dwarf Fountain Grass, a full foot shorter, but just as beautiful. This easily-grown grass grows just 18 to 24 inches tall, so it fits perfectly into smaller spaces and containers. In larger gardens too, it is ideal for edging beds and paths, where a shorter plant is needed to achieve the right scale and balance. It forms an arching clump of narrow leaves, topped by abundant seed heads with bottle-brush clusters at the end, making a beautiful fountain of foliage and stems. The seed heads begin pinkish-beige, and turn golden by fall, looking beautiful in the low sun of a fall day.

  • Dwarf form of the popular Fountain Grass
  • Ideal choice for smaller gardens
  • Perfect size for containers and planters
  • Lovely dwarf edging plant for beds and paths
  • Easy to grow in any sunny spot

You can grow Dwarf Fountain Grass in any sunny spot, in almost any kind of soil that is not constantly wet. It begins to bloom a full two weeks before its larger parent, so it is ideal for cooler zones, where otherwise flowering will only happen late in summer. It is the perfect size for containers, and it looks beautiful alone or with flowering plants mixed with it. This plant is hardy from zone 5 to zone 9, so it grows almost anywhere. In colder areas it may not overwinter, but it is so fast-growing that it can be grown as an annual.
