This is a beautifully tall and upright clump-forming grass to 4m in height. Hardy and perennial the new growth develops golden horizontal bands in the summer with pink plumes of flowers in the autumn.

All the Miscanthus grasses grow tall and narrow (up to 8ft in Britain) and produce fluffy grassy plumes of flower heads in late summer.

This is only meant as a guide. Please remember we're always on hand to give advice about plants and their frost hardiness.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
