(aka: P. Tiff23) This new pennisetum hybrid, from the breeding work of Dr. Wayne Hannah at the University of Georgia, is a result of a cross between Pennisetum purpureum and Pennisetum glaucum. The result is a dwarf plant to only 20" tall, with unique tricolor foliage. The wide, olive green leaves are bordered with purple, and further highlighted with a dark black-purple stripe down the leaf center. Pennisetum 'Princess Molly' is quite unique (love those adjectives) and makes a great accent plant for both the summer garden as well as annual containers. Pennisetum 'Princess Molly' is named after another granddaughter of Wayne's.
