What Houzz contributors are saying:

Smaller forms of fountain grass are great for small spaces where height and mass are a concern; here they've been planted in mass along the edges of a walkway, making a clean, simplistic yet sophisticated composition.Popular cultivars include 'Hameln', 'Little Bunny' and 'Moudry'.Shown: 'Little Piglet'
