Foxrot Giant Fountain Grass is an upright clumping and fast growing perennial with narrow green foliage. Known for its beautiful tan, pink-tinged plumes that dance above the plant, in summer and fall. Blades turn a blazing orange-red in the fall. This variety was formerly known as Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Japonicum'.
