About This Product

In growing seasons, Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass emerges in a soft, plushy mound that harkens to water droplets in a fountain, which is how this lovely ornamental received its common name. The narrow, shamrock-green blades arch outward and lend the grass its signature shapely form. In late summer, thick bottle-brush flower spikes appear in silver and rose tones. Dwarf Fountain Grass is the perfect accent with color and texture that stands alone and subtly complements neighboring companion plants. Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass, botanical name Pennisetum alopecuroides Hameln, is widely adaptable, easily flourishing in USDA zones 4-11 in either full sun or shade. It reaches a height and spread of 18 in. to 30 in. The foliage is a medium green that turns a coppery tan in autumn, with colorful pinkish-white flower spikes. Its soft feathery texture is often overlooked, yet never goes unappreciated by gardeners after planting this compact ornamental. The balance of contrasting texture and color makes Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass an ideal variety to complement all other plants and fill open ground spaces in a garden.

      The plants (4) looked dead on arrival. It appears one is growing, two have died and we'll have to see on the last one. This was the worst purchase made through HD and I am a loyal PRO Member! Hurts me to give a bad remark.

      Looks dead, but probably isn't
      While the reviews that the plants were "dead" when they arrived concerned me, I have purchased this type of item that goes dormant before and decided to take a chance. The plants definitely looked "dead" when I took them out of the box. But that's also what a dormant plant looks like. Packaged well with lots of plastic wrap. Moist soil when the plants arrived (maybe too moist, I didn't have to water for a week). Ten days later after exposed to sun, new growth is appearing.

        I received a one gallon container but with a much smaller container inside. The fountain grass was about 4” high and mostly brown.

          We could not find oriental grasses in stores in October so we decided to order online. The plants did arrive as pictured and earlier than stated so we were pleased. We planted immediately and they are doing good late November. We hope they grow and look great next year!

          Dwarf Fountain Grass
          Looked healthy enough. After winter(zone 8) it died. My assumption is not winter hardy in central Texas. Pretty bummed

            I have seen weeds that look better. Shipment arrived a week late. Small sprigs of wilted plants 3-4 inches high. Not worth the price. Home Depot issued full refund and told me to throw them away.
