Black Flower Ornamental Grass

Fuzzy flower spikes that are a smoky purple-black color emerge in late summer and contrast nicely with the fine, deep green foliage. Pennisetum alopecuroides Fountain Grass makes a wonderful accent in the sunny landscape, or plant it in drifts for a massed effect.  The ornamental grasses will dance and sway in the breezes.  Completely drought-proof once established.
