Fireworks Fountain Grass is one of the most colorful ornamental grasses available. This explosion of color features leaves that are striped burgundy, green and white, which glow deep pink to purple from a distance. Even the flower stems and seed heads are purple-pink, so the whole plant is vibrant with color. It grows into a fountain of foliage and flowers, up to 4 feet tall and 2 feet wide – a real show-stopper. This grass is easily grown in any sunny place, and it looks great among flowers and small shrubs. Once established it is drought-resistant, so it needs very little care. Use it in containers and planters, for instant color without needing to plant flowers. Wherever you grow it, this plant will stop the show.

  • Brilliant explosion of red, purple and pink
  • Colorful striped leaves in burgundy, green and white
  • Fountain of pink, fluffy seed heads
  • Easily grown in any sunny spot
  • Drought resistant and reliable

Fireworks Fountain Grass is hardy in zone 9 or warmer. In cooler areas it is fast-growing, and it can be used as an annual plant. You can also overwinter it in a cool, frost-free sunny place, and replant in spring. This easy grass needs no unusual care, and grows well in poor soil, and hot, dry places. Water regularly for the first few weeks, and after that only when the soil is dry. Fertilize in spring with slow-release fertilizer for the most vigorous growth. It has no notable pests or diseases, and deer usually leave it alone.
