Miscanthus sinensis ‘Rotsilber’


Red-silver Miscanthus

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.270.350


Also known as Japanese Silver Grass, there are many selections now available, all providing a wonderful fall display of showy plumes, and remaining attractive all winter. This variety has large reddish-pink flowers over a compact mound of dark green leaves. The foliage becomes orange-red in fall before turning a light tan shade for the winter. Useful as a specimen, in the border, or for mass planting. Trim to the ground in late winter or early spring. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth appears. Introduced by Ernst Pagels of Germany.
