Basket grass is a spreading, tropical grass with delightful green, cream and pink variegation. It is a striking accent and weaver in a combination planter. It roots along its nodes as it creeps. Best color is achieved in full sun but Basket Grass is also tolerant of some shade. Keep the soil evenly moist to avoid scalding the delicately variegated leaves. Sold in a 4.5″ Pot 1.37 Pt. (648 ml.).
