An elegant, deciduous, clump-forming perennial grass.with flowers that open deep red before turning white and fluffy. The narrow dark green leaves have a distinct silver stripe down the centre. The foliage becomes orange-red in autumn before turning a light tan shade for the winter. Sep-Oct. H120cm S75cm.
Grow in any moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun, but dislikes excessive winter wet. Like all Miscanthus, clumps will benefit from being cut back hard in the spring to encourage new growth.
