‘Hameln’ is one of the best small Fountain Grasses, reaching only about three feet tall. This beauty is useful in full sun or partial shade. Perennial fountain grasses are a prized group for landscaping accents, and they live up their name. They are mound-forming creating a fountain-like focal point wherever they grow, with a spectacular bloom in midsummer. Ornamental Grasses provide texture, structure, and beauty that will set off your favorite blooming flowers. Not only a dynamic element to your garden, Ornamental Grasses are extremely easy to grow, maintain, and will provide additional interest by evolving in seasons while the rest of your garden may be dormant. Cut back in late winter or spring  before new growth emerges.
