Ribbon grass (Phalaris arundinacea) is a relatively small grass, growing only about a foot high. It has a dense mat of foliage with strappy leaves that begin with pink or white tinged variegation. As the leaves mature, they become striped with green and white, which has earned them the name gardener’s garters. They are also called reed canary grass. The plants are native to Europe and North America and are hardy in USDA gardening zones 4 to 9. Occasionally the plant will form a small flower in June or July which becomes a grain-like fruit. This is uncommon and the plant is limited to its foliage finery as its focal interest.
