We use all sorts of plants in our mixed containers to spill or cascade over the edge. This one happens to be a grass. Variegated Basket Grass brings a new dimension to these contained garden arrangements with its narrow interestingly textured leaves. Known to some as Bamboo Grass, this selection has striped foliage of colorful white, green, and burgundy-pink. Both variegated and green forms of this plant are used as groundcovers in tropical gardens. It is easy to grow in containers or color beds and can be over-wintered inside as a houseplant.
