Info

This brightly variegated, cool-season grass bears arching leaves with creamy white to pale yellow stripes. Where summers are cool and moist, it produces an abundance of flower panicles that rise well above the foliage in midsummer. A great specimen or border plant. Tolerates a wide range of soil pH, including alkaline soil, but struggles where summers are long and hot. AGM winner.
