Willowy, flowing fountain grass is a beautiful addition for any landscape, and the Cassian variety is no exception. Delicate, feathery bottle-brush blooms are touched with pink and top off the deep green foliage. Considered to be a dwarf fountain grass, this sweetie is perfect in small spaces and perennial gardens, creating compact mounds that top out at 3 feet high. Perfect in zones 5 through 9, this ornamental loves full sun and can tolerate heat, drought, poor soil, and cold, making it a beautiful workhorse for any green space. Productive from Summer to Fall, Cassian even dazzles in the Winter when the blooms are glazed with frost. Elegant, colorful, and versatile, little Cassian will dress up your landscape in big ways.

There are endless possibilities when looking to add interest and personality to your garden. Whether you are looking for fizzy pops of tropical color, sophisticated forms and classical hedges, or bushes that provide bounties of summer sweet fruit, these plants give countless options for bringing incomparable character and unbeatable aesthetics to make your garden and landscape as unique as you are
