I've had a couple people email me asking about Pennisetum 'Piglet' I really like it. It is smaller than most but bigger and less stiff than 'Little Bunny'

Very pretty, thanks for sharing photos and info.

I have been looking for a smaller grass. The one I was interested in isn't available at the nursery. They did have "piglet" however :-)

I'm assuming yours is sited in full sun. Has it ever "flopped" for you after rain, etc? Also I worry about it doing the "do-nut" thing...

No flopping and we have lots of rain and no donuting either.

flame miscanthus does that for me but not any of my fountain grasses.

Did you find those in pots or did you grow them from seed? I've never done OG from seed and am a little intimidated by the process! I'd be grateful if you'd share your source for that variety!

I bought it from Santa Rosa Gardens in a pot. On sale.
