Bloom Description: The arching mound of bright green foliage turns golden brown in winter. The flower spikelets are borne in bristly yellowish to purplish cylinders to 8 in (20. 3 cm) long. They resemble bottle brushes, and are at their peak in summer and begin to disintegrate by early winter.
Propagation: Propagate cultivars of fountain grass by dividing the root clump in the dormant season.
Notes for Identification: Chinese fountain grass is at its best in masses, especially borders. Plant at 3-4 ft (0. 9-1. 2 m) spacings. This grass is a graceful, fine-textured fountain of foliage and bristly bottlebrush flowers that adds interest and beauty most of the year. The dense, foxtail-like flower spikes are excellent in fresh arrangements, but they shatter in winter. These can be invasive.     plant info from:  floridata
