How to take care of Phalaris arundinacea Picta
Phalaris arundinacea Picta requires good drainage. Phalaris arundinacea Picta will perform poorly and may not survive winter in hard clay soils that retain moisture. Phalaris arundinacea Picta tolerate heat and some dry soils once established. Provide full sun to light shade and dry to medium soil. Newly planted Phalaris arundinacea Picta need winter protection. Mulches will not only protect Phalaris arundinacea Picta but help to avoid onset of rot. Removing faded blooms as they fade will help to prolong the flowering time. Crown/root rot may develop in poorly drained soils. Watch for rust, powdery mildew and leaf spots.
It’s a cool season grass meaning it prefers cool temperatures and during the summer months it tends to go dormant and should be cut back as the flowers begin to appear to encourage a new flush of foliage for the autumn.
