- Mature Size

Great in landscapes and containers.
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.
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.
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.
