Pennisetum 'Cherry Sparkler'- 1 Gallon

Pennisetum 'Cherry Sparkler'- 1 Gallon



USDA Zones 9-10


This showy, medium-sized red fountain grass has beautiful variegated foliage that makes this plant a must have! The new growth is vibrant, with mature leaves turning to a dark burgundy. It can grow 24-30” tall & wide.


Outdoors, grow in full sun for best coloration. It tolerates a wide variety of soil, but does best in those that support good drainage. Once established it is drought tolerant, but can also tolerate moist soil conditions. This grass isn’t preferred by deer & has no serious insect or disease issues. This warm season herbaceous evergreen will die back to the ground in cold conditions. To prevent this, plant in a container that can be brought inside during the fall before first frost. 


Indoors this Pennisetum loves cool, bright conditions. Keep it in a well lit window that receives bright, indirect sunlight most of the day.


Plant in your garden or in a patio container to add color, motion, & texture to any arrangement! 


We will ship this plant in a 1 gallon size bare root.

  • Packaging Process

    All of your plants will be shipped bare root. We begin by removing excess soil & wrapping the roots/bit of leftover soil in a damp paper towel to ensure the roots don’t dry out on their journey. Next, we wrap the damp towel with plastic wrap. After your soil & roots are properly sealed, we wrap your plant in paper. Depending on how fragile the plant is, we may wrap it again in foam insulation or bubble wrap to ensure the plant won’t break. Once the plants have been wrapped, they are taped down into their box to keep them from moving around. Extra stuffing, receipts, heat packs, & optional gift messages are then added & VOILA! 💚
