They look fantastic together Bathgate. For some strange reason neither of these plants survive here.

Sorry to hear that Klahanie. Maybe you just need to find the right place for them. Fountain grass is like dune grass you see at the beach. That's what they like. Very lean & gritty soil with blazing sun. Goldenrod likes that too. No fertilizer or compost for these.

Maybe that's the problem Bathgate. Too damp climate for them....so I will admire yours.

The fountain grass reminds me of a firework.

Thanks Julia. There is a variety actually called 'Fireworks'. It's very bold with orange & red leaves.

I wonder if it would like my garden?

This is great companion planting Paul. Soft subtle prairie style...
