SKU
07589
Fine, arching grass-like foliage adds great texture and color to moist, shady areas. Butter-yellow-striped leaves with dark green-edges remain attractive throughout the season. Forms a low tufted mound, perfect at pond's edge, in dappled shade borders or as a container accent. Evergreen in mild winter areas.
