  • Position: full sun or partial shade

    This evergreen perennial is primarily grown for its grass-like foliage, which forms an upright tussock. It will grow easily in a pot, or could be threaded though the border where its variegated foliage will add colour as well as structural interest to the planting scheme.

  • Garden care: Cut back the flower stems after they have faded, and tidy up old dead leaves in March. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
