Phalaris arundinacea var. picta ('Picta')
Ribbon Grass

The foliage of Ribbon Grass emerges in early Spring, and looks best in Spring and early Summer, before leaf scorch occurs (if sited in full sun). A cultural practice is to mow off the scorched foliage in mid-Summer, irrigate, and perhaps lightly fertilize, and fresh new variegated growth will soon emerge for the remainder of the growing season.
