Design IdeasWith its narrow, reed-like foliage and a bonus of variegation, this plant is dramatic in natural gardens, with Asian themes or as a stark vertical texture in the spare, modern landscape. Highlighted stripes suggest sun dappling. Contrasts well against very large-leafed, shade-loving shrubs and bronze-colored plants.

Thrives in organically rich, well-drained soils; tolerates clay. Best with some shade in hot summer regions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Remove spent flower stalks and old foliage as new leaves emerge. Divide if needed in early spring.
