Features and uses:

The Pennisetum alopecuroides Magic belongs to the Poaceae family and is an ornamental grass of Asian origin.

The Pennisetum alop. Magic has a fairly compact attitude and shows bright, thin, long green leaves that tend to form a "fountain" tuft. In the autumn it takes golden nuances.

The inflorescence appears abundant in August in the form of plumage with varying colors: brown, beige, gray turtle, and remains until the first cold, when it will cover many water crystals.

It tolerates both positions in full sunlight and in semi-shadows, and likes a well-drained soil, not necessarily fertile. Very rustic, tolerates high and low temperatures and even salty.

Great for those who want a self-contained garden, the Pennisetum alop. Magic boasts all the benefits of ornamental grasses: it requires very little water, is not subject to disease, spreads in width, prevents the growth of undesirable herbs, requires no fertilizer, asks for only one pruning at the end of February to remove the dry leaves.

This ornamental grass is perfect for both urban green and private greenery: in rounded streets, in planters, in hedges or small hedges, in mixed flower beds, near a pond, perhaps combined with Carex oshimensis Evergold or Festuca Blauglut, or Miscanthus Ghana.
