An oldie-but-goodie that's been around as long as we can remember, and still one of our favorites of the hardy fountain grasses. Pennisetum 'Moudry', what we call Black Fountain Grass, is an easy to grow ornamental perennial grass adored for its distinctive and showy, foxtail-like dark purple to almost-black flower spikes that rise above an attractive clump of gracefully arching green leaves that turn bright golden-yellow in fall. The flowers turn silvery as they dry and are excellent for cutting and use in fresh or dried floral arrangements. Both the texture and color of this grass makes for a fine accent in smaller garden spaces or containers or in groupings or as a border in large spaces. Get all the details below!
