Striped Fortnight Lily
This evergreen, variegated perennial is useful in mass plantings, as a container plant, or as a solitary accent plant. It produces clumps of long, upright narrow leaves that are a dull green with creamy-yellow marginal stripes. Flushes of white flowers rise above the foliage in two-week cycles giving this plant its common name of fortnight lily.
