Moderate-growing evergreen ornamental grass to 8-14” tall and wide. This attractive variegated variety forms a tufted mound of narrow, upright to arching, green and creamy-white leaves that develop a lovely pink tinge in the cool of winter. Stems of small, tan-colored flower stems rise above the attractive foliage in summer. Well-suited as an accent in mixed shrub borders or planters, or planted in mass as an attractive, flowing groundcover. Prefers regular watering in a well-drained soil, and thrives in a partial sun to filtered shade exposure.

USDA Zone: 4A-9B
