This variegated variety of Ribbon Grass has cream, pink and green-striped, sword-like foliage that makes an excellent background and edge plant. It grows about 1 foot tall and develops thin, silvery plumes in the late summer that may reach up to 4 feet tall. The leaves of this plant are about 3/4" wide.

Strawberries and Cream Ribbon Grass requires a wide-mouthed 5-gallon pot. It prefers to be kept in saturated soil, and does not do as well when kept in standing water throughout the growing season. When planting, place roots against sides of pot for maximum growing space across the pot and to prevent them from jumping out. The roots grow shallowly across the soil and produce twin offshoots from each side along the length of the rhizome. Grow in sun to part shade. Goes fully dormant during winter. Zones 4-11.

Approximate Purchase Size: 12" to 18"
