How to take care of Pennisetum Purple Baron
Suitable for any well drained soil, plant in a sunny or partially shaded position. Enrich the planting site with organic matter prior to planting. Leave plenty of space between tall varieties. Plant in a hole deep enough so that the root ball will be a little deeper than the plant was growing in it's container. Water well after planting and for a few weeks until the plant is established. Mulch grasses with organic material in the autumn to protect roots and shoots from freezing. Grasses which die back completely in winter can be rejuvenated by cutting the entire plant back to about 10cm in early spring. Divide grasses every few years in the spring just as they are beginning to break dormancy. Dig the plant up and cut the clump into divisions with a sharp knife or spade, replant the divisions.
This variety isn't fully hardy and to thrive it requires a sheltered position with free-draining soil
