What Is Fireworks Fountain Grass?

Fireworks fountain grass is a brightly-colored variation of Purple Fountain Grass. It features deep burgundy-purple leaves with hot pink stripes along the edges. The plant produces arching red bottlebrush flowers in late summer.

Fireworks fountain grass grows best in full sun and normal, sandy or clay soil. Relatively low maintenance, it is a good plant for growing in containers, even in colder climates. It can be wintered inside by cutting it back to 6 inches in late fall and should be watered throughout the winter to promote growth. The plants reach maturity at 35 to 47 inches high and 25 to 35 inches across.
