Pennisetum Alocuroides). Mound forming plant that grows well in fertile moist, wet or well-drained soil. It prefers full sun to very light shade. Great with other perennials as a specimen plant. Mass planting produces a colorful display when in bloom. Flowers look like soft cattails up to 3' tall in July through early winter. Flower color changes from whitish purple to coppery purple. Fall foliage is yellow-gold. Looks great as a transition from formal to natural area.
