More About Variegated manna grass

Glyceria maxima aquatica ‘variegated’, Variegated manna grass is a rhizomatous perennial grass that thrives in moist areas with sun to part shade. Emerging early in the Spring with young pink foliage, Variegated manna grass reaches about a foot tall through the season and has leaves striped in a creamy eggnog tan and bright green. Best kept contained in a pot because it will wander into other plants if left unrestrained. Hardy in zones 4-11.
