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 (to 1/2” wide) 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 like water spraying from a fountain (hence the common name). Flower spikes turn brownish as the seeds form, and spikes usually persist until late fall or early winter before shattering.
