Miscanthus sinensis ‘Dixieland’

Variegated Miscanthus

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.270.560

There are many varieties of Miscanthus now available. This midsized selection forms a graceful, upright mound of leaves boldly striped lengthwise with green and creamy white. Soft-pink plumes appear in late summer through the autumn, maturing into silvery seedheads. Similar to ‘Variegatus’ but more compact, sturdy and self supporting. The foliage dries and turns a light tan shade for the winter. Useful as a specimen, in the border, containers or for mass planting. Cut back to 4 inches in late winter or early spring. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth appears.
