Beautiful creamy variegated arching foliage on this evergreen perennial for good to wet soil in at least some shade. Really tough but best out of cold winds. 25cm.
Tough evergreen plants like Acorus gramineus 'Variegatus' often get lebelled with "useful" which people take to mean boring, but this is useful but not boring! Perhaps underplanted now, but they were popular in the 1990s particularly in Japanese gardens.
Acorus gramineus 'Ogon'£4.50
A valuable, evergreen, yellow variegated version. Lovely for its bright winter effect. Grass-like arching foliage to 30cm in average to good soil in shade or part sun.
Miscanthus sinensis 'Variegatus'£6.50
Bright creamy white striped foliage on this old variety, introduced from Japan in the second half of the 19th century. In a warm season silver-pink flowers are produced on stems to 1.8m, September-October. Good soil in sun.
