Pennisetum glaucum 'Purple Baron'
A dramatic ornamental annual millet which grows quickly over summer, providing a bold statement to pair with hot summer colours. Broad, strappy foliage starts off green, gradually deepening in colour to darkest burgundy almost black. The upright feathery flower spikes add to the beauty, and the seed heads can be used in dried flower arrangements as well. Full sun produces the best leaf colouring. Flowering size 60-80cm x 40-50cm. 9cm pot.
