NAFRAY® Pennisetum

Nafray® Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘PA300’PBR

  • Tougher, more compact variety of native Pennisetum
  • Non-invasive native (low viability of seed)
  • Proven performer for over 10 years

Description: Nafray® Pennisetum is a native grass that has a finer texture, is more drought tolerant, more compact and has better winter colour than the common form. It’s showy, feathery flower plumes appear from summer to autumn. NOTE: Do not get this native Australian Pennisetum alopecuroides confused with the invasive African variety (P. setaceum). The native Australian varieties have a much wider plume than the exotic variety, and are non-invasive making them a safer choice. Very rarely in ideal conditions, this variety has the low possibility to regenerate from seed (e.g. Northern NSW/QLD in warm/wet winters, wet areas and excessively irrigated gardens). It is not an invasive weed, however if you experience these conditions and prefer to avoid the low chance of regeneration, remove spent flower heads as required and dispose of correctly.

Size: 60cm high x 60cm wide.

Uses: Mass plantings for borders, rockeries and roadsides.

Position: Full sun to part shade. Nafray® Pennisetum suits sandy to heavy clay soils. Tolerates frost, drought and humidity.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Use slow release fertiliser in late winter. Trim back annually to 1/3 the size in late autumn to winter.

Where it works: NSW, ACT, QLD, VIC, SA, WA & TAS.
