That's very pretty. I'd like to know what it is as well. If no one here recognizes it, perhaps you could post it over on the Plant ID forum.

I think it's a sedge (Carex species) not a grass. There are quite a few variegated cultivars so I won't venture a guess as to which one. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher[common]=&searcher[family]=&searcher[genus]=carex&searcher[species]=&searcher[cultivar]=&searcher[hybridizer]=&searcher[grex]=&search_prefs[blank_cultivar]=yes&search_prefs[sort_by]=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search

I may be wrong, but it looks like miscanthus to me, possibly variegatus.
