Prairie Winds® Lemon Squeeze
A brilliantly colored ornamental grass that’s perfect for contrast in your sun garden. ‘Lemon Squeeze’ behaves like other Fountain Grass but boasts chartreuse gold leaves. One of the best for vigor that we’ve seen in gold-leafed Pennisetum with absolutely no burning in the sun. Copper panicles appear above the foliage in midsummer and provide additional interest to this three seasons grass.
This ornamental grass grows best in rich, well-drained soil and full sun. It does not tolerate wet soil. Leave foliage standing through winter if desired, but cut back before new growth appears in spring.
