Plant Type: Grasses

A stunning variegated form of 'Karl Foerster' brought to us from Steve Schmidt of American Ornamental Perennials. The reverse variegation of C. 'Overdam', this selection has deep green leaves with a wide white stripe down the center. The variegation remains distinctively appealing throughout the growing season. This is the perfect plant to use as a screen or backdrop in your garden due to its distinctly upright and clumping habit.
