Phalaris arundinacea 'Strawberries&Cream'
A good clump of this pink/white/green variegated grass brightens up our pondside nicely. It starts growth early in the season, well before the taller grasses such as its neighbor Miscanthus 'Morning Light' get going. It does want to crawl around by its roots, so we have to restrain it from time to time - but it's worth it.
||not fussy, but likes moist soil
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|John||Jul 29, 2009||Do the ribbon grass " stripes" have a particular pattern? Are the outer edges always green, or the lighter color? Or is it random?|
