Miscanthus sinensis ‘Little Zebra’


Dwarf Zebra Grass

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.270.630


A dwarf selection of Miscanthus, also called Japanese Silver Grass. This forms a midsized mound of green leaves with attractive horizontal banding of creamy yellow. Shorter than regular Zebra Grass, this is well-suited to smaller gardens or growing in containers. Plumes are deep pink to red and appear from late summer into the autumn, gradually turning silver for the winter. Foliage dries and turns almond in late fall, usually remaining attractive all winter long. Trim back to 4 inches in late winter. USPP#13008: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
