Gardeners Garters (Phalaris arundinacea) with floating ring

Gardeners GartersPhalaris arundinacea is a tall spreading grass with variagated green-and-white-striped foliage and it also forms a narrow pale green flower. Its tall clumping nature encourages insects making it an excellent plant for attracting frogs to your pond. It’s a real all-rounder in water gardens as it will tolerate full sun through to dappled shade. It looks its best when grown on mass and due to its quick-growing nature, it can be divided up into multiple plants throughout the warmer months.
