Tricolor Ribbon Grass - Phalaris arundinacea 'Feesey'

A rigourous, invasive, bamboo-like ornamental grass with upright variegated, pink tinged foliage in the cooler times of the spring and fall. Use as a dense, weed-free ground cover where invasiveness is not a concern. Great for water gardens, along streams and ponds to stabilize banks.

Plant in moist well drained soils. Tolerant wet areas. Plant in a sunken container in areas where size control is needed. Fertilize in spring. Cutback the plants in mid summer to rejuvenate with fresh colorful foliage. Cutback in spring before new growth begins.
