Why the Pink Skyrocket Foamflower?
Fun and frothy, light and sprite. Pink Skyrocket Foamflower gives shady spaces a playful touch. You’ll like its bright green leaves, each one stamped with a small burgundy star, and you’ll love its bountiful blossoms. In mid-spring, a bevy of slim spires appears, sporting countless miniature flowers like tiny pink stars. Just the thing to liven up a north-facing foundation bed, a shaded patio, or a woodland garden. If you haven’t discovered our native American Foamflowers yet, you’re missing out! Pink Skyrocket is a great place to start.
It’s a treat to come across a patch of pretty little Foamflowers in the wild. There are a few different species that call our country home, and they can be found all over the eastern U.S. and in the Pacific Northwest. In spring, they light up the forest floor and shady slopes with their airy bottlebrush flowers. In recent years, hybridizers have made Foamflowers even more endearing by crossing the different species to produce plants with showier flowers and foliage. Pink Skyrocket was bred by Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon. It was introduced to the public in 2001.
How to use in the landscape?
Where winters aren’t too harsh, Foamflower has a pleasing presence throughout the entire year. Evergreen leaves hang on during the cold months. Pink Skyrocket’s foliage has the added bonus of a wardrobe change—the leaves turn from green to deep bronzy black when the temperature drops!

How To Plant
Most Foamflowers do best in shade—at least give them shade during the hottest part of the day. Intense sun can scorch the foliage. Plant Pink Skyrocket in rich, organic, well-drained soil that is moist but never soggy. Trim off spent flower spikes if you find them unattractive. This plant is evergreen; clean up any winter-damaged foliage in early spring. Black vine weevils can be a problem in some areas. You can control them organically with beneficial nematodes if this is the case, or simply keep your Foamflowers in containers.
How To Water
Water as soon as they arrive! Foamflowers need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape.
