Description

Phalaris Arundinacea

Sometimes called ‘Strawberries and Cream’, this selection of Ribbon Grass has an especially bright appearance. This is a spreading grass, forming a wide patch of medium height. Leaves are striped lengthwise with dark green and white, blushed with pink in spring and fall. 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.
