    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.
  • Care
    Care Information
    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. 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.
