Pennisetum x advena ‘Cherry Sparkler’

This other mutation of the red-leaved foreign millet (‘Rubrum’) is derived from the ‘Fireworks’ and ‘Sky Rocket’ selections. This medium-sized cultivar is distinguished by the soft pink-red coloring that appears on its linear leaves, variegated with green and white.

The pink-red hues become more pronounced as the daylight hours increase. Full sun intensifies color and contrast. Cherry Sparkler’ requires warmth. Its burgundy feathers stand well above its foliage. Like its predecessors, its height and spread can vary from 35 to 45 cm. Bright foliage.
