|A low-growing ornamental grass with drooping, bamboo-like leaves.
This 'Albo-striata' variety has green leaves with a white stripe down the
middle. It is shade-tolerant, but does not seem to require as much shade
as the 'Aurea' variety. It also grows much
faster than 'Aurea'.
This is a very easy and rewarding grass. A few plants placed in a row
will readily spread into a thick border within a few years. Like
most grasses, the brown winter foliage should be cut back to the ground
in late winter to make way for new growth in the spring.
