The rarely seen variegated form of this enchanting woodland grass makes neat clumps that may slowly spread if it's happy. Otherwise it's slow! Good soil that doesn't dry out in shade. 20cm.

This variegated form of Wood Melick must be one of the longest cultivated ornamental grasses as it has been documented in cultivation back into the 19th century.

A hardy British native grass from woodland clearings and edges, the usual form quite common along tracks and roads going through broadleaf woodland in the UK.  Native to most of Europe and some of the near east.
