A shimmering spray of very narrow, white and green grass-like foliage grows to 6-10”, looking spectacular next to dark foliaged plants such as Heuchera ‘Blackout’ or Ophiopogon ‘Ebony Knight’. Almost unnoticed Lavender flower spikes appear in summer followed by dark purple berries. ‘Silver Mist’ spreads slowly by rhizomes and prefers average to medium moisture and well-drained soil.
