Dense clumps of slender, green blades with creamy white margins and midveins that create a shimmering silvery appearance. A superb grass that adds visual excitement wherever used. Reddish inflorescences that persist through winter provide an interesting accent to bare winterscapes. Wonderful texture for beds and borders.

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.
