Add movement and texture to the garden with Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln Gold', a rare yellow-leaved Fountain Grass. This compact, trouble free grass emerges bright green, and slowly turns a yellow gold, before fading to beige in the fall. Mid to late summer brings a halo of fluffy flower spikes that look like foxtails. Use this ornamental grass in various applications in the garden and as an accent in cut arrangements both fresh and dried.
