  Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Moudry' - Black Fountain Grass
 
Pennisetum Moudry
Pennisetum Moudry with sedges in the Greenlee garden
 
As seen in the middle of this sedge meadow, black fountain grass grows in a clump to 2 feet tall with rich glossy leaves 1/2 to 3/4 inches wide. The flower spikes, as they poke up 1 foot above the foliage in August, appear black. In late fall this plant turns yellow then to a straw gray in winter. Expect seedlings of this plant in an irrigated garden. Remove or allow plants to form an attractive colony - does not seed into non-irrigated areas.
