Variegated ribbongrass is a perfect plant for adding a dose of color anywhere you don't want to maintain; it's a fast-spreading variety perfect for covering slopes and other areas. It earned its common name because the green leaves are beautifully striped in creamy white.
Variegated ribbongrass thrives in just about every garden situation from full, hot sun to shade. (In shade, it spreads a lot more slowly.) It also doesn't mind wet or dry soil.
