Ornamental Grasses – a feathery fall blast!
What a year it has been for the cool grasses! The specimen below is a Pennisetum var. ‘National Arboretum’, which only now (mid October) has it sent out these dark fronds. Stunning! Imagine a large drift of grasses in your sunny garden! (specimen spotted in a semi – wooded garden in Winfield Il) NOTE: Don’t cut or burn back til late winter.
