Similar in appearance to M. 'Gracillimus', this cultivar was selected specifically for its earlier flowering time and fall color. Its thin, upright, green leaves form arching mounds and turn copper-red in the fall. In late summer, soft silvery-white plumes are held high above the foliage and sweep in the wind.
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.
