Bulking and height control of purple fountain grass with PGRs


February 5, 2018 - Author: W. Garrett Own

ARE you tired of your purple fountain grass [Pennisetum ×advena (formerly known as P. setaceum ‘Rubrum’)] not filling in the container? Are you exhausted from pruning your purple fountain grass crop with little to no bulking occurring? Are the flowering stems (culms) damaged during shipping because your crop is too tall? In this second article of a two-part series, we will discuss how pre-transplant liner dips and post-transplant spray applications of plant growth regulators (PGRs) can assist you in bulking and controlling the height of purple fountain grass.
