Phalaris arundinacea 'Pure Gold' (Ribbon Grass) is an ideal addition to garden water feature, pond landscape, or anywhere with wet soil. This very ornamental grass has narrow deciduous leaves that are bright yellowish-green. From May to July greenish-white flower spikes bloom above the colourful grass. The striking yellow leaves provides a dramatic effect early in the spring when most grasses are still awakening. After few April frosts the tip of the leaves turns bright orange ressembling a burning fire. This spreading grass works well when allowed to wander.
