Description

Reineckia carnea, Chinese Lucky Grass is a charming woodland evergreen perennial, a broad-leaved grass-like member of the Nolinoideae that steadily creeps by stolons to form a lush clump of apple-green pleated foliage. The basal stems are an attractive contrasting pinkish-purple. In early-to-mid-autumn, robust maroon-purple flower spikes appear at ground level, the buds opening to reveal pale-pinkish white starry flowers. The spike-like inflorescence resembles that of an elegant slender hyacinth in miniature. Purplish berries follow and persist throughout the winter.

Reineckea carnea is a delightful plant that is easy to grow as long as it is protected from the sun and kept moist throughout the summer. The slugs and snails leave it alone and it will gradually create an exotic patch of luxuriant ground-cover.
