Pennisetum Dark Desire is a clump forming ornamental grass that produces extremely attractive flower spikes in mid- to late summer, which mature into long, wispy seed heads. The heads, hence the name, change from pink-tinted green to purple and finally a beguiling black.

Highly effective, all ornamental grasses offer graceful movement in a border and the texture softens hard edges in a courtyard or on the edge of a path. P. Dark Desire can also be successfully planted as a specimen in a container positioned in full sun. This useful perennial grass also has the advantage of not appealing to deer!
