Reed Canary grass (Phalaris arundinacea) 'Feesey'

Striking cream and green striped leaves make this grass one of the most distinctive variegated ornamental grasses available today. It has the added feature of conspicuous pink tinting on the stems and leaves during the cooler months of spring and fall. This cultivar is named for British horticulturist and ornamental grass specialist Mervyn Feesey. Reed canary grass is a rapid spreader that must be contained unless it is being used as a groundcover or for erosion control. It is not grown for its seed heads, though soft white panicles are produced in midsummer.
