Why plant Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass?
Over a bazillion sold! Hameln Fountain Grass is one of the most popular Fringes you can buy, and it’s easy to see why. This perky people pleaser makes a neat mound of rich green foliage followed by fun plumes. The plumes arise in mid to late summer and look like little foxtails. When the sun shines through them, they sparkle so brightly, they appear to be producing their own light. At about 2 ½ feet tall and wide, Hameln is big enough to make an impact, but it never gets unwieldy or outgrows its space. You can pop it in just about anywhere!
Fountain Grass once grew only in Japan, China, and in other countries in eastern Asia, but it was only a matter of time before Westerners got their hands on this stellar plant and began planting it in their own gardens. Europeans were into Fringes before Americans were, and German nurserymen and women especially were pioneers in developing and introducing new Ornamental Grasses for landscapes. That’s why this Fringe has a German name. It was named after the town in Germany that we know as Hamelin. (The German spelling is “Hameln.”) If this sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because it’s also the town that sparked the medieval folktale, “The Pied Piper of Hamelin.”
How to use Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass in the landscape?
Hameln Fountain Grass shines as a single specimen in a mixed border, and it looks sharp in a decorative container, either alone or potted with other plants. However, it looks even better as a mass planting, preferably in front of a dark background to show off the creamy-buff plumes. When the sunlight illuminates the foxtails, it’s pure magic!
Hardiness Zone: 5-9
