Phalaris arundinacea, commonly known as ribbon grass is a kind of ornamental grass whose popularity in gardens has rapidly increased in the last couple of years. Though quite invasive in nature, these ribbon grasses brighten up any garden with their beautiful foliage. These grasses grow from rhizomes and spread in a thick mat. They are very easy to grow and can survive almost any condition. If not pruned properly they might become a nuisance.

Basic care

Ribbon grasses are quite hassle-free. The only look-out necessary for them is pruning regularly.

Lighting

These grasses prefer partial sunlight. However, they can adapt to any amount of sunlight quite well. To reduce their invasive nature, they should be planted in shade.

Watering

Though the ribbon grass is drought resistant for a short period of time, they appreciate regular watering.

Soil

The most important requirement of the Ribbon grass is a well-drained soil. This grass can adapt to any kind of soil as long as it has good drainage properties.

Fertilizing

If the leaves of the grass are scorched from too much sunlight, a fertilizer can be used. Compost and mulch can also be applied around the roots if the plant is being grown in a cold area.

Planting

The plants propagate mainly by root cuttings. The sections of the plant must be cut in such a way that there are some rhizomes in that section. Each section is then simply planted in their designated area.

The cutting of roots should be done when they are in the dormant stage.

Foliage

The grass grows only a foot high and forms a dense mat. The leaves are strappy with pink or white variegation in the beginning. After maturity, the leaves develop white stripes.

These plants rarely bear flowers. The flowers are small which become a grain-like fruit. The blooms appear usually during June or July.

Benefits

They are used for ornamental purposes.
