Pennisetum glaucum and purpureum

Pennisetum glaucum and purpureum are basically weedy grasses. At the right place, mixed with other ornamental plants, they become more than attractive plants. Probably originating in Africa, in a diffuse belt stretching from western Sudan to Senegal, and domesticated some 4,000 years ago in this region.

This species is adapted to a range of soil types, but is best on sandy or light loam soils.
