Resembling Pampas grass in appearance with huge plumes of tan/pink held high above the cascading blades of grass. Plumes mature copper to white. The showy plumes and the bronze, red and orange hues of the fall foliage make this ornamental grass a real focal point.
Foliage and flower plumes persist well into winter providing visual interest in the off season. Miscanthus is equally pleasing as a specimen or planted en masse as a screen. Northern gardeners can achieve the look of Pampas Grass (too tender for the north) with Miscanthus.
