Tight clumps of upright stems clothed with moderately broad light green leaves heavily cross-striped with pale yellow. 1.5m here, no flowers so far. Good soil in sun.

I believe this is an American variety and probably bred for the warmer States. While the foliage is very good it never makes it into flower here as our warm summer season is not long enough. That said, if you want a Zebra Grass with broader leaves and not too tall, 'Super Stripe' is definitely worth looking at.
