More compact and shorter than the species, 'Hameln' has finely textured leaves that are especially lovely when backlit by the early morning or late afternoon sun. Soft, greenish-cream colored panicles begin to appear in midsummer, a few weeks earlier than the species. This grass works most effectively in mass plantings, but also can be used as an accent plant in gardens and in containers.

Pennisetum 'Hameln' prefers to be grown in rich loamy soil with good drainage and full sun. However, it will grow in rocky or sandy soil as long as it receives periodic moisture. This grass resents having "wet feet". It may be propagated by seed or division.
