Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Piglet’ PP19074
The compact size of this fountain grass makes it a versatile design element. At just about knee height, it can work in the middle of a perennial bed or as an edging. Soft, narrow leaves provide fine texture and movement all summer. Flower plumes appear in mid- to late summer. Seed heads provide fall interest. A good “medium size” between two other popular cultivars, ‘Hameln’ (larger) and ‘Little Bunny’ (smaller). Also reportedly more floriferous than ‘Little Bunny’.
