Plants form a graceful upright mound of narrow green foliage of up to 7ft in height, which remains attractive from summer through the winter. Statuesque coppery-pink plumes appear in mid- late fall. Ideal for use in borders or the waterside. Orgin: Asia.

A statuesque grass that will extend the season of interest in a mixed border, this has fine, arching leaves with a distinctive white stripe down the centre. It does not flower as reliably as other Miscanthus sinensis cultivars, but when it does, it produces striking, silky brown flowers that hang like tassels in late summer and last well into autumn.
