    A graceful, fountainous grass that takes its name from the horizontal cream bands on the leaves. It is for this wonderful foliage that this striking grass is grown, but it may also produce silky, finger-like flowerspikes in late summer. If these do appear, they are usually retained for several months, so give this plant a dramatic winter presence. Use it as a specimen, or as a backdrop to late flowering border perennials.

  • Garden care: Cut down to the ground in late winter before the new foliage appears.
