Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ALOPECURUS pratensis 'Aureovariegatus'
Meadow Foxtail, Variegated Golden Meadow Foxtail
This variegated perennial grass has linear blades with attractive golden yellow and green stripes. It is a clump-forming grass that spreads more slowly than average meadow foxtail, so it is less apt to be weedy.
Meadow foxtail is a perennial cool-season grass native to Eurasia. It forms spreading clumps and has large upright variegated blades that are flattened and rough to the touch. The tiny inconspicuous flowers are borne on tall cylindrical spikes held well above the foliage. Meadow foxtail grass grows best in moist locations and is found in wetlands, roadside ditches and irrigated fields.
