This Miscanthus distinguished by its silvery flower heads and striped leaves (green with white lateral bars)
All the Miscanthus grasses grow tall and narrow (up to 8ft in Britain) and produce fluffy grassy plumes of flower heads in late summer. They remain looking good up until December when it’s best to cut them down and let them start again in the spring. Very decorative and tough. Any reasonably well drained in masses of light (as opposed to shade). Much noise is heard nowadays of Miscanthus being used for fuel as it produces masses of stuff (biomass, it’s called) on relatively poor soil. We grow it because it makes a beautiful addition to the the garden. Propagated by division.
