This dwarf fountain grass tops out at around 18 inches, producing cute bottlebrush plumes beginning in late summer. This very floriferous selection has a pleasant mounding habit, ideal for containers, small patios, and foreground plantings. Works great as a specimen plant and even better when planted in mass.
