Design IdeasA most gorgeous variegated ornamental grass. Makes an exceptional light minty green and white accent for beds and borders, and large rock gardens. Plant as a vertical accent among low-growing plants or at the corners of a square patio. Line it up as background foliage for a bed of dwarf shrubs and perennials. Perfect near water gardens and fountains as wildlife cover, to disguise mechanical pumps or filters and to give the illusion of reeds. Also lovely in cobalt-blue or mint-green ceramic pots for patio, porch or terrace.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Cut back and apply a general purpose fertilizer just before new shoots appear in late winter to early spring. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years.
