A compact Miscanthus forming a neat mound with a prolific production of blooms. Its narrow, green foliage arches nicely with blooms appearing by August. An excellent selection for smaller gardens and plantings. Prefers well-draining soil.

Grows to 5 feet tall by 3 feet wide.

Noted for its narrow green leaves which form a substantial, rounded, arching clump of foliage typically growing 4-6' tall (to 7' when in flower). Foliage turns orange-red in fall, but fades to straw-beige by winter. Tiny white flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in late summer, gradually turning into silvery white plumes as the seeds mature. Flower plumes persist well into winter providing good winter interest.

Narrow leaves are soft and slightly pendulous producing a lush foliage clump, turning gold in fall. Blonde flower spikes just inches above the plant remain through the winter. Great single specimen. Perfect size for decorative ceramic pots.

Average height: 1-3 feet.

A compact narrow selection, Miscanthus sinensis 'Nippon' green foliage reaches heights of 4' to 5’. Pink blooms begin emerging in mid summer. A clump-forming variety, 'Nippon' is best grown in sun in moist well-drained soil.

Distinctive yellowish-white, horizontal banding on the leaves distinguish it from nearly all other grasses. Foliage habit is more arching than upright. Spectacular pinkish copper plumes appear in early fall. As the seeds mature, they become fluffy, and are a great accent to the tan winter foliage.

Height: 6-8 feet.

Multi-colored fine-textured leaves, pink in spring, turning white in summer. Grows well in moist, wet conditions and in poorly drained soils. Grow in full sun to partial shade. Fast spreader. A vigorous grower, a wonderful container plant!

Height: 2-3 feet.
