Description

Phalaris Arundinacea ‘Picta’

Also known as Gardener’s Garters. This is a spreading grass, forming a wide patch of medium height. Leaves are striped lengthwise with light green and creamy-white, and are useful for flower arrangements. Tan spikes appear in summer. Choose a site where this grass can wander freely, or plant in tubs and containers. Often this will benefit from a hard clip back in midsummer, just as the flower spikes appear, in order to rejuvenate the foliage. Easily divided in spring or fall. Loves moisture.
