Those lovely, fluffy spires earn this Pennisetum its clever name: ‘Tall Tails’. Scott of Rhone Street Gardens brought me three of these. I planted two of them at the edge of this bed, where other grasses are also featured.
That’s Panicum ‘Heavy Metal’ growing to the right. I like its upright habit in contrast to the fluffier look of the Tails.
Now that I see what it will do, I will plant the third one (still in a pot) next to the first two with visions of a future mass of these guys waving their tails in the evening light.
Here’s one last look, with thanks to Scott for introducing me to a new favorite, and to Loree for providing the platform for writing about our favorite plants on a regular basis.
