The Pennisetum alopecuroides Herbstzauber is an ornamental gramineae belonging to the family of poaceae originating in Asia.

It looks like a dense clump of filiform leaves, falling on themselves, brilliant green, which in September occupy the typical autumnal colors. At the base of the tuft, the erect kegs are born, which at the top will bring the inflorescence of brown brown color, with beige and silver reflections, between August and October.

Then during the winter the leaves and inflorescences are covered with so many small crystals, making the lovely garden even in the cold and gray days until the end of February, when with a simple garden scissor you can, to leave room for the new vegetation.
