GR-PIG

Add to Favorites

Description

‘Piglet’ is an ornamental dwarf fountain grass that typically grows in a graceful, spreading clump to 18” tall and 24” wide. Narrow, medium to deep green leaves form a clump rising to only 8” tall. Flower stalks rise from the clump to 18” tall in summer featuring showy, fluffy, bottle brush-like, tawny flower spikes that arch outward in late summer. Flower spikes turn brownish as the seeds form, and spikes usually persist until late fall or early winter before shattering.

 

        

 

** It is BEST to cut your grasses back in late February to early March in order to protect the roots and ensure the health of your plants.  If your ornamental grasses become a bit unruly by the end of the fall cut them back to only one half the height of the plant and leave the rest for early spring.
