How about some fireworks on the 4th of July!
Here's a variegated purple fountaingrass I tried this year in a container.
Its official name is Pennisetum setaceum rubrum (wait for it) 'Fireworks'
I love the brightly colored variegated foliage.
And the soft fuzzy purple plumes.
This is definitely a thriller that will add sparkle to any summer container garden.
'Fireworks' is an annul in my zone 7/8 garden, but it is no dud! It takes the Texas summer heat with ease and makes me go ooh and aah as the plumes shoot up above the colorful foliage.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
I hope you get to see some great fireworks :-)
