Pennisetum macrostachyum Burgundy Giant Pennisetum macrostachyum 'Burgundy Giant'
Code: 90489
Price: $9.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Giant Burgundy Fountain Grass

This fast growing grass with deep burgundy leaves (boldest of the fountain grasses) makes a dramatic background in the perennial border. The clump grows 4 to 5 feet high with large, purple foxtail-like pendulous flower heads. It seldom sets seed, so it's not invasive as some of its smaller cousins. Needs full sun, moisture, and good drainage. Use the stems with leaves and flowers in floral arrangements. The flower heads can also be dried. This tender plant is originally from the East Indies including Borneo and New Guinea and thus cannot take any frost. Propagate by divisions and in colder climates keep the small plants warm over winter to plant out in the spring. USDA zones 9b - 12. Poaceae

 
Quantity:

Silver Cloud Pilea, Silver Panamiga

NEW! - Uncommon house plant with striking silvery leaves, ruffled and serrated, with pinkish color on the undersides. It's an upright compact plant to 10 inches high with inconspicuous flowers. Although it likes terrarium conditions, it might be a bit large for such usage. Ideal in a mixed planting of house plants, such as with silvery or spotted begonias, thus creating a nice contrast. Also, use it in its own hanging basket. Indoors give it bright conditions and humidity and let the soil dry slightly between watering. It does not like waterlogged soil, so do not use too large a pot, smaller is better. Needs part to full shade outdoors in mild climates. Minimum temperature should be 50F, with the ideal range from 65F to 85F. Since cuttings root easily, it's a good idea to periodically replace old plants. Cold air, especially in winter, may cause some leaf drop. Do a bit of judicious pruning in spring to induce new growth. Native to South America. USDA zones 10 - 11. Urticaceae
