Green leaves with white striped margins form a beautiful vase-like clump topped with smoky pink, arching plumes that turn cream as they age. Since the plumes are sterile, the plant blooms from midsummer all the way into mid-fall.
A terrific companion to the temperennial grass Pennisetum s. ‘Fireworks’ , this green and white sport is a strong grower that exhibits stable variegation all season long.
This tender grass is perfect for adding height and structure to combination container plantings. Like ‘Fireworks’, it should be grown as an annual in most parts of the country.
Genus Notes - Pennisetum
These lovely grasses are favorites, distinguished by arching, feathery bottle-brush flowers spilling over a cascading mound of foliage.
