Pennisetum Setaceum or simply call it the Cherry Sparkler, is a herbaceous annual striking featuring stunning arching colourful foliage. This Fountain Grass forms an upright mound of green and white leaves that are decorated with a blush of pink. This bushy grass is suitable for borders and creates striking standalone plants on the patio. These are annual plants that can brighten up any dull corners in your garden.
Cherry Sparkler can reach a height of 1 metres. Its compact habit allows it to fit with other perennial shrubs perfectly. It produces long blades of green striped leaves, margined with white on both sides. The narrow leaves are blushed with bright pink. It produces long terminals of purple-pink flowers that look like bottlebrush flowers. These extraordinary blooms that rise above the grass, give a hazy effect to the plant.
This Fountain Grass is easy to grow and maintenance as it can adapt to a wide range of growing conditions. It will thrive in a moist soil that is well-drained and fertile. Its roots dislike clogging of water, whatsoever is the weather. Plant it in a sunny or partially shady spot and water moderately in the dry periods.
Some of the leaves will die out in winters, depending on the region. Trim back any damaged or dead leaves in spring. Apply a decent feed of slow-release or a liquid fertilizer in summer.
Pennisetum Cherry Sparkler is perfect for beds and borders. It provides colour, contrast and texture for other taller border shrubs. Plant it in a garden container as a centrepiece, where it will arch like a fountain and make your patio look special.
