Description:

Rich green broad blades have conspicuous milky white stripes - a very showy ornamental grass that will assuredly add drama to the landscape. Copper-colored plumes appear above the foliage in early fall, age to a cream color on stems that blush pink as they mature. A bold accent or focal point for the garden.

Design Ideas: This large ornamental grass is colorful and ever changing. An exceptional variegated leaf topped by vivid flower heads that are rich with orange-pink highlights. Great big accent for beds and borders and large rock gardens. Use as a vertical among low-growing plants or have a pair flank a favorite sculpture or classical stone column. Perfect near water gardens as wildlife cover and in conjunction with tiered or wall fountains to disguise mechanical pumps, filters, pipes and wires. A real stunner singly or in pairs planted in distressed metal pots or antique urns on pedestals.

Easily grown in average, moist, well-drained, loamy soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, tolerates moderate dry spells. Cut foliage clumps back to 3 inches above the ground and apply fertilizer in late winter to early spring.
