Miscanthus sinensis New Hybrids

Japanese Silver Grass

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.270.240

Also known as Japanese Silver Grass, these create substantial clumps and provide a wonderful fall display of showy plumes that remain attractive all winter. This mixture will vary in foliage size, leaf colour and height, the plumes ranging from white to pinkish. Hardiness will also vary but most plants should survive in Zone 6 or higher. The foliage dries and turns 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.
