A variegated selection of Reed Grass, suited to a multitude of uses and not invasive in any way. Low clumps of leaves are striped with green and white, appearing in early spring. Soft feathery greenish-mauve plumes appear in summer, maturing into stiff wheat-coloured spikes, which last into winter. May be used in large groupings towards the back of a border, but also very effective when used more as a single specimen. Hardy enough to survive in containers or tubs in many regions. Clumps may be easily divided in spring. Trim to the ground in March. Cool-season.
