Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Moudry'
Black Fountain Grass

Formerly known as Pennisetum viridescens 'Moudry', this more vigorous cultivar of Fountain Grass will shatter its seed heads in late autumn and winter, and will prolifically self-sow the following year unless preventive measures are taken (deadheading and cleanup in late autumn, followed by pre- or post-emergent herbicides in spring, or hand-pulling of seedlings).
