Variegated plants are not everyones cup of tea but Pennstripe™ Pennisetum has subtle variegation for those who want something with interesting foliage that’s softer and not so bold.
From a distance the compact Pennstripe™ Pennisetum provides great colour contrast. In early summer to Autumn the cream flower heads bring out the cream in it’s foliage.
Pennstripe™ Pennisetum is a non-evasive native grass that will attract birds and is well suited to roadsides, mass planting and low maintenance gardens because of it’s drought and frost tolerance.
Only growing 45cm by 45cm also makes it a great choice and even better, it suited to most soil types. Simply cut back once a year in late Winter or early Spring to get fresh new growth.
