snake grass... childhood memories pulling it apart :-)

Do you remember snake grass? Colorado memories pulling it apart, pinching one side and making music. Doesn't work here in Oregon, for some reason.

Great container from /nickgardenguy/  The combination of the three plants here creates a striping of color. The bottom color stripe comes from the trailing silver ponysfoot and spiderwort fills in the base of the container. Finally, mother-in-law’s tongue rises to almost three feet, creating the top stripe. http://www.gardendesign.com

Plants shown here: Dichondra argentea ‘Silver Falls’ (silver ponysfoot), Tradescantia pallida ‘Pink Stripe’ (spiderwort), and Sansevieria trifasciata (mother-in-law’s tongue). Building Container Combos- Garden Design Magazine by Nick McCullough
