Prince Pennisetum, also known as elephant grass, is a semi-dwarf variety with a more vigorous growing habit than others. When first becoming established, the slender, pointed leaves will emerge with a purple midrib running down the middle of a purplish-green blade. As the plant matures, new leaves emerge purple, with the purple intensifying and deepening as summer temperatures rise. An average leaf is 34" long by 1 1/4" wide. Use in borders, foundations, and in large containers.
Height: 4-6 ft
