Like so many grasses, fountaingrass is spectacular when backlit by the rising or setting sun. Named for its especially graceful spray of foliage, fountaingrass also sends out beautiful, fuzzy flower plumes in late summer. The white, pink, or red plumes (depending on variety) continue into fall and bring a loose, informal look to plantings. This plant self-seeds freely, sometimes to the point of becoming invasive.
Colorful daylily flowers in reds, golds, yellows, and purples contrast beautifully with fountaingrass. They thrive in the same conditions.False sunflower
The brilliant yellow and golden daisy flowers of false sunflower are cooled down when planted near fountaingrass, and together they create a meadow look in full sun.Dahlia
The wonderful assortment of dahlia flowers in all colors and shapes lose some of their stiff formality when planted with fountaingrass. Both prefer full sun.
