Phalaris arundinacea Picta
Gardeners garter

Height: Tall

Planting Zone: 1 - 2

This beautiful aquatic grass, boldly variegated with longitudinal stripes of green and white, is a striking subject for marginal or pondside planting. The variegated foliage adds interest to the pond throughout the growing season and compliments the green foliage of other water plants. Allow it to grow into bold clumps for dramatic effect. Plant in a medium or large container using aquatic soil covered with pea gravel and place on the marginal shelf, or plant in moist conditions at the pondside or by the stream or waterfall.
