Phalaris arundinacea 'Picta'

Phalaris 'Picta' Ribbon Grass

Common Name: Ribbon Grass, Ornamental Grass

Striking, cream and green striped leaves make this grass one of the most distinctive variegated ornamental grasses available today. Phalaris is a cool-season grass, and its colors will be most pronounced during these periods. However, it is also a rapid spreader that must be contained unless it is being used as a groundcover or for erosion control. This grass is not grown for its seed heads.
