Grass Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Hameln’
Arching foliage with graceful flower tassels. Good for massing. Marginally hardy in New Hampshire. Cut old foliage to the ground in the spring.
Though late to emerge in spring, grasses create a striking vertical accent in the summer garden; their flowers add grace to the fall garden, and in winter, they add more interest than almost any other plant. There are many to choose from in our climate.
