True to both its Latin and common names, Molinia arundinacea 'Skyracer' and Tall Moor Grass respectively, this dramatic grass can grow to 7 ft tall. Molinia arundinacea 'Skyracer' has very tall feathery plumes, which erupt fountain-like from cascading green foliage. A striking, animated plant, the plumes move with the slightest breeze. Beautiful with sunlight striking the plumes. Of interest from late spring through winter. Origin: Eurasia.
