Miscanthus Graziella (Silver Grass)

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.
