Desert Plains fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) forms an upright vase-shaped clump in the garden. The narrow leaves are green until midsummer, when they start shifting to deep red. By autumn, leaves blaze in orange and gold shades. Eye-catching five-inch bottlebrush seedheads appear in early fall. Use this grass for a focal point in a planting bed, skirting it with chunky-textured plants, like autumn-blooming sedums, brunnera or peonies. Tuck plants into a spot with full sun to part shade and rich, well-drained soil. Desert Plains fountain grass is deer resistant and hardy in Zones 5 to 9.
