A great choice for problem sites, such as the dry shade under a tree canopy. A vibrant, grass-like plant with green foliage, striped with cream. Leaves are wider and more blunt at their tip than grasses, and in warmer climates, the foliage persists through the winter. Clumps run from 30cm to 45cm tall and half again as wide. Spikes of small blue-violet flowers appear in late September and are followed by dark purple berries.
