Géant d'Argoat Fountain Grass is a tall and elegant perennial. Growing up to 4 ft in height, it is larger than the well known cultivar Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Japonicum', newly renamed 'Foxrot'. Like 'Foxrot', 'Géant d'Argoat' produces spectacular 6 to 8 inch long bottlebrush seedheads. Flowers are dark brown-red without the usual white tip. The slightest breeze causes elegant seedhead movement. For a stunning display, Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Géant d'Argoat' is best used as a specimen or planted in groups. Its long seedheads also make excellent, and very unique looking cut flowers.
