Grass, Japanese Silver ‘Variegatus’
5 in stock
‘Variegatus’ is a variegated grass cultivar which typically grows in an arching, rounded clump to 5-6′ tall (flower plumes can increase height to as much as 7- 9′ tall). Features leaf blades variegated with green and white stripes, with white being the predominant color from a distance. Foliage fades to tan after frost. Tiny reddish flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences which rise above the foliage clump in September, gradually turning into silvery plumes in fall as the seeds mature. Plumes persist well into winter providing good winter interest.
