Pennisetum Vertigo features saber-shaped leaves that first appear as narrow and dappled green.  As it matures, the blades widen and gradually turn more purple.  It develops into a spectacular deep burgundy- pupler ornamental grass that adds an exotic look to any landscape or large patio container. 

This heat loving grass performs all summer and fall. Vertigo turns brown at first frost and therefore provides a wonderful winter interest with its dried foliage and seed heads.
