(Fountain Grass) Enjoy the motion that GRACEFUL GRASSES® bring to your landscape. Pennisetum 'Sky Rocket' is a variegated white and green grass with a fluffy pink 'flower'. Standing 24-30 inches tall and up to 20 inches wide, 'Sky Rocket' plays a good role as a thriller in container designs. Also, excellent in fall combos mixed with heucheras and pansies. 'Sky Rocket' also sets a beautiful back drop to landscape plantings. This heat and drought tolerant ornamental grass grows best in full sun locations. 'Sky Rocket' is a strong grower and should be grown as an annual in most parts of the country.
