  • Plant for shade

A very beautiful grass with distinctive green and white variegation. It forms a low, evergreen mound which looks good in the border or in a container. 

Prefers a moisture retentive but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. 

Height: 6 - 12 inches / 15 - 30cm

Spread:  6 - 12 inches / 15 - 30cm

Lynne’s notes:

Although a fairly recent introduction this variety has become a firm favourite of mine. A good ‘do-er’ in dry shade where the white stripes in the foliage seem to glow in the gloom. Really compliments Brunnera macrophylla ‘Silver Heart’ or ‘Looking Glass’, Geranium nodosum ‘Silverwood’ and Pulmonaria ‘Ocupol’.
