One of the showiest of the grasses. Large or short, it is grown for its vertical or mounding habit and showy, fluffy flower panicles that are so striking in late summer and fall. Fond of moist sites.  Miscanthus is versatile from a design standpoint; it can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond's edge. Plant this grass where its wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed.

Giganteus (Giant Silver Grass) This is a grass of monstrous proportions, forming very tall clumps of green leaves, their tips arching gracefully in layers. Useful as a living screen or hedge, bearing soft-pink plumes in the fall. The corn-like stalks turn creamy tan in winter. Lower leaves have a tendency to wither in late summer, so planting something tall in front is recommended. Plants require plenty of moisture, and are even happy growing beside water. Pink Green September 10ft 36” spread

Little Zebra (Dwarf Zebra grass) Like ‘Zebrinus’ but shorter and more upright. Reddish-purple plumes turn to creamy tan in winter.  Red to tan Gold/green August 3-4ft high 24” spread
