A medium-sized grass noted for its sky scraping wispy plumes held high above the tussock of fine-textured green blades. Outstanding fall color in yellow orange hues resemble rockets shooting from the ground.

The statuesque plumes rising from the mound soar skyward, gracefully swaying with the slightest breeze. Seed heads of Molinia Skyracer create a pleasing see-through veil that does not completely obscure the view of the landscape behind.
