As the name implies, Dwarf Fountain Grass forms graceful, arching clumps, providing a beautiful backdrop for perennial and cut-flower beds. Green in the spring, this grass forms buff-colored seed stalks in the summer that are valued in cut flower arrangements, and provide textural interest in the garden. Drought tolerant once established, Dwarf Fountain Grass turns a glorious golden-yellow color in the fall before fading to beige. Wait to cut back old foliage until late winter so you can enjoy the changing colors.
