Common Name: Ornamental Grass, Miscanthus
Though the green leaves with silver mid-ribs form beautiful clumps, the most outstanding feature of this new cultivar is its flowers. In late summer, a profusion of full, burgundy plumes sweep the sky. Grows 5 to 6 ft high.
The plant maintains its graceful form throughout winter, providing tremendous winter interest.
Miscanthus is versatile for a garden design. It can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond’s edge. The blooms can be used in dry flower arrangements. Plant Miscanthus in full sun. The foliage on Miscanthus adds winter interest to the garden. Leaving the foliage on the plants through the winter can protect the crowns from the cold. Deer Resistant
