PENNSTRIPE™ Pennisetum alopecuroides 'PAV300' PBR

Pennstripe™ Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘PAV300’ 

  • Contrasting variegated native grass
  • Very compact and hardy
  • Non-invasive to bushland (so far has not set viable seed)

Description: Pennstripe™ Pennisetum is a beautiful contrasting landscape plant with feathery plumes that compliment its fine foliage nicely. It grows to 2/5 the size of its common form. 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.

Size: 45cm high x 45cm wide.

Uses: Mass plantings and specimen planting for borders, rockeries, roadsides, commercial and residential use.

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

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.
