Variegated Reed Sweet Grass (Glyceria maxima variegata)

This grass changes colour throughout its growing season from a pinkie/red stripe in early spring to a yellow/white late in the season.  It produces panicles that are a purplish/green colour in late summer.  Not as tall as the native Glyceria so better for a smaller pond.
