Quick Overview:

‘Piglet’ was discovered and introduced by Intrinsic Perennial Gardens. Perhaps the most perfectly sized compact fountain grass. Its height falls right in between ‘Little Bunny’ and ‘Hameln’. Great as an edger or in a container. Tawny colored, cascading plumes in late summer.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soil in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. Tolerates part shade, but may not flower in too much shade. Cut foliage to the ground in late winter before new shoots appear. Best propagated by division in spring. Although Pennisetum often reseeds, it should be noted that this cultivar will not come true from seed.
