Pennisetum alopeduroides Karley Rose
Karley Rose Fountain Grass
Details36-42" tall x 36" wide. Pennisetum alopeduroides ‘Karley Rose’ is an outstanding selection of fountain grass enjoyed for its showy, dark, rose-purple flower spikes that cover the plant from mid-summer into early fall. Improved vigor, size, darker flowers and cold hardiness distinguish this variety from other fountain grasses. Cut off the faded flower spikes in the fall as they are not persistent into winter. Enjoy the plant's yellowish fall foliage which remains attractive through the winter months.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
