'Avalanche' brings the same narrow, upright form to the garden and the same profuse, pluming flower in early to mid-July as 'Karl Forester', but it also brings something completely new… variegated foliage! That's right, deep green foliage carries a wide band of white down the middle of the blade bringing even more interest to an already superb grass. Like 'Karl Forester', plant it in groups and watch the landscape come alive with great color, form, and texture!
Cut back to 6 inches in spring before new growth begins. Be sure to provide plenty of water in hot weather.
