Fast-Growing, Decorative Grass There’s nothing like decorative grasses to lend unique texture to your landscape, and Sky Rocket Fountain Grass is a wonderful variety that you won’t want to miss this year! Sky Rocket features a lovely, vase-like shape for your garden with a gentle, arching nature to its long foliage. Each narrow blade of grass is vibrant green with delightfully white-striped margins. This fast-growing grass erupts out from the base and extends upward, until forming a gentle arc as it travels back down toward the ground. In mid-summer, gorgeous smoky-pink blooms shoots up above the foliage–eye-catching, fuzzy blossoms to dance upon the breeze! The blooms mature to a creamy tone, persisting into mid-fall. Seed heads follow as the grass browns for its winter visage. Your Sky Rocket Fountain Grass will grow up to 3 feet tall with an equal spread. It looks spectacular in a mass planting and is sometimes used en masse for erosion control. It can even be used in containers on your patio, providing vertical height and definition amid lower plantings. If your temperature never gets below 15 degrees Fahrenheit, then you can treat this as a perennial. Otherwise, wait for the grass to turn brown and you can cut it back or remove it. However, leaving the dried grass and seed heads can create quite a beautiful vision for your winter landscape. Decorative grasses will always be an elegant, yet natural way to enhance the home landscape. Sky Rocket Fountain Grass is a preeminent example of the type of decorative grass sure to enhance your home this year. * Decorative foliage* Long blooming summer flowers* Year round interest* Semi-evergreen* Fast growing.

A compact grass with a big impact! Grasses are finally getting their day in the sun in American home gardens. Long a staple of riotous English cottage borders and calm Japanese tea gardens alike, US gardeners are finally catching up to the ease and carefree beauty of well-chosen grasses in their own spaces. The catch with growing grasses is that you have to know what size and form you’re growing or you’ll end up with the wrong plant in the wrong place and many people misjudge just how tall grasses can grow. With the beautiful Gold Dew Tufted Hair Grass (Dechampsia cespitosa ‘Goldtau’) you get a highly ornamental but compact plant that packs a big punch in a little space. Gold Dew has very dark green leaves and blooms a little later than other grasses, but when it blooms it is covered in golden inflorescence that dance and shine and sparkle in your garden and are well worth the wait. These naturally short plants – the tufts only get about 24” tall – are perfect for covering the ‘feet’ of bare-bottomed plants like tall Phlox or Bee Balm for a prairie garden effect. Or try them around roses for a modern take on the classic lavender/rose combo. If you want to really stop traffic, a mass planting along a walk or driveway will do the trick. Join the revolution.
