Pennisetum alopecuroides-white, also known as Chinese pennisetum, is a plant species of the family Poaceae. The plant’s synonyms include Cenchrus alopecuroides, Alopeucurus indicus, and Cenchrus asperifolius. Other common names for the plant include swamp foxtail grass, foxtail fountain grass, dwarf fountain grass, and Chinese fountain grass. The plant is indigenous to Australia and most of Asia. Pennisetum alopecuroides is capable of growing to a height of 60 to 100 cm. The plant largely comprises numerous erect or drooping leaf blades that grow to a length of 10 to 45 cm. Each blade is conduplicate, flat or involute and has a width of 3 to 6 cm. The leaves experience two different colour changes during the course of the summer. The blades initially change from deep green to golden yellow before turning beige later on. The clamps provide the point at which white floral spikes sprout from. The spikes gradually turn brown the more their seeds develop. The plant’s seeds are edible and are best consumed by first grinding them into a powder which slowly accumulates into flour. Once a person gathers a substantial amount of flour, he/she can cook it as desired or store it for later consumption. Pennisetum alopecuroides also has some ornamental attributes. The appeal of the grass lies in its lovely foliage and white spikes which lend a beautiful colour to the landscape. Such qualities are, more often than not, taken advantage of in parks and gardens. Pennisetum alopecuroides is an ideal plant for borders, massing, foundation, and cultivation in containers. Additionally, the grass provides a thick ground cover whose growth patterns are graceful. If cultivated properly, Pennisetum alopecuroides can guarantee that no uncovered spots will be left behind. The plant grows well in rich, well-drained soils with sufficient moisture content. Propagation of the plant is achievable through dividing the rootball and through seeds.
