|Botanical Pronunciation||mis-KAN-thus sin-EN-sis var-i-e-GA-tus|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing; reaches 6 ft. tall, 3 to 5 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||A most gorgeous variegated ornamental grass. Makes an exceptional light minty green and white accent for beds and borders, and large rock gardens. Plant as a vertical accent among low-growing plants or at the corners of a square patio. Line it up as background foliage for a bed of dwarf shrubs and perennials. Perfect near water gardens and fountains as wildlife cover, to disguise mechanical pumps or filters and to give the illusion of reeds. Also lovely in cobalt-blue or mint-green ceramic pots for patio, porch or terrace.|
