Quick Overview:

‘Avalanche’ is a feather reed grass cultivar which is noted for having variegated foliage featuring green leaves with a white stripe down the middle of each leaf. It is further distinguished by having a more compact size (2-4’ tall) and for its pinkish-green flowers.

Description

Does well in heavy clay soils, unlike many of the other ornamental grasses. Prefers moist, rich soils which do not dry out. Blooms in light shade, and appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Since this hybrid is sterile, there is virtually no chance of its escaping and becoming a scourge on the landscape.
