Folks new to grasses are attracted to its beautiful red-burgundy color, flowing foliage and long bottlebrush plumes. Those who are familiar with ornamental grasses love it because it is an easy- and fast-growing annual bedding plant with plenty of character. Pennisetum x advena ‘Rubrum’ is often used as a colorful specimen, in sweeping masses or as filler in perennial beds. In decorative urns, its garnet color contrasts beautifully with deep greens, blues and yellows. It maintains its shape and color throughout the summer; blooms remain lovely from June until frost.
