Plant Features

The Strawberries and Cream Phalaris (Ribbon Grass) Plant produces multi-colored, finely-textured leaves blush bright pink in the spring, turning predominately white in the summer and often turning tan in the fall. This plant is great for naturalizing as it grows very fast-forming thick mats, spreading by underground rhizomes. It is often grown in containers. Phalaris ornamental grasses produce upright stems that make striking additions to the garden as accents or groundcovers. Also, superb when grown in containers. Photo is courtesy of F.D. Richards
