Perennial grasses are a common fixture in gardens and containers everywhere, adding a classy but non-intrusive touch to any variety of plants. Fountain grass is a very popular variety, which is prized for its feathery, reed-like tops. Atop long stalks, fuzzy sprouts of “hair” grow, which gives the grass a whimsical and modern look.
Fountain grass is easy to grow. It can do well in virtually any type of soil, as it is very adaptable. But, it excels in well-draining, fertile soil. It enjoys full sun, but can tolerate light shade.
