Schoenoplectus lacustris Zebrinus

Schoenoplectus

Schoenoplectus lacustris ssp. tabernaemontani ‘Zebrinus’ full sun  partial shade

A lively pattern of ½ in. wide alternating alabaster and bright green bands decorate the upright hollow blades, which emerge in spring. The green gradually darkens, while the alabaster develops a luminescent quality that will surely brighten any shady spot and add striking detail to floral arrangements, fresh or dried. Brownish conelike terminal flower spikes are subtle and provide interest. This water-loving Japanese Sedge is happiest at pond’s edge or in a partially submerged container.

Blooms late June–August.

Size: 5' 0"–6' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 7.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
