Add a stunning display of color to your patio, landscape or garden! Pennisetum 'Fireworks' is the first variegated purple fountain grass ever introduced - a refreshing new look on an all-time favorite! Variegated with hot pink, burgundy, white and green running the entire blade, 'Fireworks' fountain grass blooms purple plumes above the vibrant foliage during the summer months and is easy to grow in virtually any soil type. Includes three actively growing plants in 2.5” pots.

Award winner! Voted Top Performer by Kansas State University in 2011 and winning the Classic City Award from University of Georgia in 2009, 'Fireworks' attracts butterflies, but deer will pass it up in search of a tastier treat! Chosen for its color, texture and performance, 'Fireworks' fountain grass is a water-wise problem-solver that needs only occasional watering once established. A non-invasive ornamental grass! This ornamental grass has been bred selectively and does not reseed. 'Fireworks' can be planted in containers, mass plantings and even used for erosion control on slopes or banks. This sun-lover gains color with increased sun exposure and produces unique, fluffy plumes that can be cut or dried for indoor enjoyment. Perfect for landscaping, planting along walkways, and planting in pots on the patio. Drought tolerant once established and grows in a wide variety of soils. 'Fireworks' is deer resistant and has low watering needs, making it a candidate for rocky or sandy soil conditions. For colder climates, we recommend treating these as annuals or planting in containers for overwintering and year-round enjoyment. Perfect for planting around ponds for a bright pop of color!
