Proven Winners
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.
