Striped Tuber Oat Grass may appear spiky, but its leaves are soft and pliable. Its narrow foliage has conspicuous white and dark-green variegation. As it grows, it appears almost all white. It reaches eight inches and will produce attractive flowers in cool climates, but does not flower in areas with hot summer nights. This is a slow-spreading ground cover. It is also quite drought and soil tolerant. A cool season grass, it grows in the early spring and fall and dies back in the middle of summer.Arrhenatherum elatius ssp. bulbosum ‘Variegatum’ can be cut back in the dog days of summer to allow fresh new growth to appear when cooler temperatures return. It is called Tuber Oat Grass because of its underground tubers.
