Definitely one of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses, also one of the few that prefers a shady site. This selection forms a low mound of arching stems, with cascading layers of narrow, deep green leaves that feature yellow streaks; a reverse variegation of ‘Aureola’. The graceful effect is similar to bamboo. Tiny green flowers are hidden among the leaves. Slow to grow but well worth the wait, eventually making a wonderful edging plant. Combines beautifully with Hosta or Ferns since all have similar requirements. Mature clumps may be divided in early spring, but be sure to make the divisions large for best results. Handles full sun in cool summer regions.
