Hi, I'm Little Zebra! I get my name from my signature horizontally banded green and yellow foliage. Not only do I add a unique pattern and dash of color to your green space, I also have bold plumes of red flowers that rise high above my foliage in the late summer - and the show doesn't stop here, once my flowers finish blooming, my silver seed heads are displayed on showy plumes from early fall to late winter. I am low maintenance, thrive in all soil types, and only require a bit of spring clean up before I resume my growing season in the summer. I am highly tolerant of urban pollution - I love to be planted right in the city! My few requests are that I get lots of sun, and my soil is never left to dry out.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Regular watering is needed during the first growing season to establish the plant. Once established, Little Zebra can tolerate some drought, but it prefers evenly moist soil. Water deeply once a week during dry periods, especially in the heat of summer.
  • Maintenance: This plant is low-maintenance and requires minimal care. Remove any dead or damaged leaves or stems as they appear.
  • Pruning: In late winter or early spring, cut back the plant to about 6 inches above the ground.
  • (Optional): Fertilizing is not necessary, but a slow-release, balanced fertilizer can be applied in spring to boost growth.
