Phalaris arundinacea ‘Strawberries and Cream'

Strawberries and cream ribbon grass. White-striped leaves are blushed pink as they rise along spreading rhizomes. Pink blush in the leaves fades as the season progresses. Flowers appear in soft white panicles in June, maturing to a pale brown on 18” stems. Winter foliage is not as dramatic in coastal California gardens, but still provids a winter grace. Exceptional accent plant, alone or in groups and well-suited in a border with regular water. Best in moist, fertile soil with light shade or half day sun. Tolerates standing water and not a good choice for the dry gardens. Tolerates sandy or rocky soil, as well as windy coastal conditions as long as water is provided. Tough, tenacious and aggressive in favorable sites. Hardy to 0F. Garden origin.
