Miscanthus sinensis ‘Huron Sunrise’

Maiden Grass

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 8.270.540

This outstanding selection was developed in Ontario, Canada by Martin Quinn and forms a graceful clump of green leaves with silver midribs. It is considered the most heavily blooming Maiden Grass, with large, full, burgundy plumes appearing from late summer into fall. Plants stay attractive throughout the winter when the foliage turns almond, providing the garden with interest. Excellent as a specimen, for massing or providing a screen, in large containers and at the water’s edge. Trim back to 4 inches in late winter or early spring.
