I love the look of pink grass, with its long hairy stems and its bright colors. I’ve featured pink grass before but today I wanted to show you a few close-ups. Here’s what decorative pink grass (and not pink) looks like as a whole. This is technically called Pennisetum setaceum ‘Fireworks’ (Variegated Purple Fountain Grass).
And here it is closer. Best use I’ve found for it? Tickling people’s necks. Works every time.
Thank you, Catherine!
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
The pink grass is pretty, but I bet rolling in it would leave a pretty pink rash, too!
I’m not sure how bad it would be since they are decorative and found in many public places. They do tickle a lot though!
Why don’t you strip down, roll around, and find out. 😉
Haha, just breathing the outside air makes me sneeze here! I never had any allergies until I moved to San Diego.
Then bring your Claritin. 😉
Very beautiful images!
Thank you very much!
Looks like silk-very pretty.
Thank you! It’s very soft if you rub it the right way, prickly the other way.
What interesting looking grass. I don’t think we have any quite like that. It does look as if it would get tangled in dog fur though.
Public places use this type of decorative grass a lot. I guess it’s pretty drought resistant, which is convenient for San Diego weather. You have to pull on it pretty hard for the seeds to come off, until they’re coming off on their own. It’s just pleasant to gently touch and their swaying in the breeze is lovely.
What an unusual color, I haven’t seen it this far north. We do have some reddish brown shades but not that pink.
We do have the light brown and some of that reddish brown you have, but the pink is by far my favorite. Very colorful!
I wish we had it here, it’s so pretty!
Very pretty grasses!
Thank you very much!
Thank you for your contribution to Macro Monday 2!
You’re welcome. Macros are by far my favorite.
