Päideroog (Phalaris arundinacea) 'Picta'

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.
