Phalaris arundinacea ‘Dwarf Garters’ ...Even miners have to hold their socks up.

Phalaris arundinacea ‘Dwarf Garters’ ...Even miners have to hold their socks up.

Posted by John Friel on May 16th 2022

Poor Snow White. Imagine having to deal with 14 dwarf garters every laundry day! It’s a Grimm fate.

Luckily, there’s a version that’s a lot prettier and much lower-maintenance than those nasty things.


Phalaris ‘Dwarf Garters’ is an easy-to-grow ornamental grass with green and white striped foliage that takes on a pink blush in cool weather. It thrives in moist areas, whether streamside, pondside or in a container. It even grows in shallow water. 

Height: 12 – 15” 

Hardy in Zones 4 – 9 

Full sun or part shade.


When you need the fairest of them all, put down the mirror and pick up the phone. Dwarf Garters’ comes in beefy, quick-finishing 38-cell liners from Emerald Coast Growers – your easy choice!
