Miscanthus sinensis 'Variegatus' - Variegated Japanese Silver Grass

Description

Miscanthus is a group of ornamental grasses that make excellent perennials. They are clump forming plants with reed-like stems and leaves that are narrow and arch to the ground. The flower heads are puffy plumes that form in late summer to fall and make good cut or dried flowers. Most species are moderately frost hardy. Miscanthus sinensis 'Variegatus' has an arching growth habit and can reach 4-6' in height with an equal spread. The leaves are 1/4" wide and pale green with creamy white stripes. Too much sun can burn the foliage. Variegatus will bloom late summer with 1-2' plume like flowers. The seeds remain in the fall for a nice ornamental effect.
