The lush pink-red plumes of our ‘Weathervane’ sway gracefully to indicate wind direction. Broad foliage forms elegant vase-shaped plants for remarkable architectural interest. Tassel-like plumes are spectacular in cut or dried bouquets.
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. Weathervane is from Kurt Bluemel of Maryland, renowned for his breeding program of ornamental grasses.
