    Design IdeasEven more white than its variegated sister, this is an improved accent for beds and borders. Plant as a single vertical accent among low-growing, dark-green plants, or line it up as a hedge or informal linear cluster. Try matched potted specimens on corners of a square patio. Perfect near water gardens and fountains as wildlife cover, to disguise mechanical pumps or filters and for the illusion of reeds. Also lovely in cobalt-blue, glazed ceramic pots for patio, porch or terrace.

Cut foliage 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.Pruning time: clumps to 5 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide. flower stalks reach 6 ft. tall..
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
