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.

A choice accent plant, 18-24" high and wide, with cream to yellow striped leaves. Purple-green inflorescences create a delicate lacework above the grass in early fall. It prefers neutral to acid, moist soil and full to partial sun.
