A fantastic plant that has variegated foliage and an outstanding arching habit. The leaf blades are almost completely yellow with narrow green stripes near the margin. Flowers are tiny small seed heads that appear in late summer to early fall. With the cool weather of fall the leaves will be infused with shades of pink and red. It has a cascading habit with the leaves all arching in the same direction. It is deer resistant and is a slow grower. Looks amazing crawling over rocks or edges of walls or in containers.
