Miscanthus Red Arrow is celebrated as one of the best for colorful red-bronze plumes in autumn. Gently swaying plumes shimmering in the autumn sunlight will cradle glittering diamonds of frost and snow to decorate the garden well into winter.
Foliage and flower plumes provide 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. M. Red Arrow is from Kurt Bluemel of Maryland, renowned for his breeding program of ornamental grasses.
