About Pennisetum: Treasured for its showy, foxtail-like, bushy inflorescence, Pennisetum comes in many sizes. Primarily clump forming, they can be used in perennial borders, alone or in a group, usually mid to back of the border. Some species are not hardy, so check the label. Whether an annual or perennial, they will add a stunning accent to the garden.
