The floppy leaves spill over like a waterfall in moonlight and each white leaf is striped in cool-yellow and buff - good in salt-glaze brown containers

    An eye-catching small ornamental grass, which forms cascading hummocks of vividly striped bright yellow and green striped foliage. The narrow leaves keep their colour throughout the season, and often when the plant is grown in full sun it develops a reddish tinge. In late summer and autumn, pale green, needle-like flower spikes appear, giving a billowing lightness to planted drifts. It is useful as a simple understorey to light shrubs and as a soft edging to paths or steps. The clean, minimalist style of this grass makes it a good choice for formal courtyards or in minimalist urban planters.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost into the planting hole. Leave flower heads to dry out through the winter, adding valuable texture to plantings. Apply a light mulch (3cm) of well-rotted garden compost after cutting back old foliage and before new growth emerges in spring.

  • Q:

    Salvia suggestion please

    Please could you advise me? I am looking to use a Salvia to plant with Buxus balls, Hakonechloa and Lavender. I need a strong, long flowering and easy caring Salvia variety that will not grow too tall. Your advise would be invaluable Thank you Jackie
