"Avalanche" is the upright grass in the background.

Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Avalanche’ is a variegated form of former Perennial Plant of the Year®, C. x acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’.

It has deep green margins and creamy white centers.

It grows in a neat clump through early summer; then silver plumes shoot up high above the foliage, supplying texture and vertical expression to the landscape well into winter. 

Drought tolerant 

Use it as a screen, contrast it with perennials in mixed borders, or plant in masses.
