The most profusely blooming Miscanthus we have seen. Huge burgundy seedheads rise in late summer and remain standing into and even through winter. Lush green blades have a silver midrib. Winter transforms foliage to tan with glistening silvery plumes.

This spectacular variety was developed in Ontario, Canada by Martin Quinn and is quite cold hardy - it's worth a try in zone 4. Miscanthus Huron Sunrise is perfect for adding textural interest to your garden landscape. Attractive in large containers or plant in mass for screening.

Miscanthus General Information

Miscanthus are the royalty of the grass kingdom with billowy texture, silky tassels, many different heights and colorations and great winter interest. Seeds are carried by a feathery plume above the plant. Pleasing sound when rustling in the wind. Deer resistant. Good for hot dry spots, also dries easily. Ornamental grasses are restricted from Oregon.

Miscanthus Plant Care

Cut foliage back in late winter before new shoots appear. Divide in late spring when needed. Shear back foliage, divide clumps with a sharp spade and discard woody centers. Replant divisions and water well. May self sow for our Southern gardeners. Cut off plumes to prevent seeding. Benefits from a well-drained winter site.
