Where Does It All Go? Oh, yeah... Everywhere! (Pennisetum a. Rubrum)

We grow so much Pennisetum xadvena 'Rubrum' – bench after bench, whole greenhouses full of it – that we sometimes wonder where it all goes. And then we take a drive, anywhere in North America, and there it is!


‘Rubrum’ is so well-known it barely needs an introduction. It’s that red-leaved annual grass you see everywhere you go: In big containers on Main Street, waving its burgundy blades and matching foxtail flowers in landscapes public and private, surrounding flagpoles, flanking entrances. And looking great all season long!

Rubrum’ routinely tops our top-seller list. Its gorgeous good looks have made it a staple at retail for years. It’s so popular, we offer it in more sizes than anything else we grow. Whatever your potting needs, we have you covered. Choose from economical 128s, our industry-standard 72s, robust 38s, and big, beefy landscape-ready 21s.

Put the star power of 'Rubrum' to work for you. You’ll wonder where it all went when you start with hot-to-pot liners from Emerald Coast Growers – the Easy Choice!
