Molinia caerulea 'Variegata'

Purple Moor Grass, Variegated Purple Moor Grass

One of the most popular of the ornamental grasses, its airy plumes of flowers glisten in the morning dew and sway in gentle breezes. The handsome, arching, clumping foliage of some varieties provide rich fall foliage color. Slow to establish, they need rich, moist soils. Good for water gardens and shady spots. Start by division.
