A brilliant new variegated selection from Belgium.  Crisp white striped foliage and arching flowers to 1.2m.  Good soil in full sun, or with the variegated leaves this could be good in a big pot.

After many years looking for a variegated selection of Molinia caerulea ssp. arundinacea two came our way at the same time!  (The other isn't ready yet!)

'Mostenveld' is a neat grower, the variegated foliage seemingly producing a slower and smaller clump than you would normally expect but it is vigorous enough to grow well.

From Jan Spruyt, c. 2014.
