Horizontal banding of soft yellow on gracefully arching foliage. Pinkish copper tassel-like flowers appear in late summer turning to silvery white showy plumes. Tan winter foliage and white plumes persist for pleasing winter interest. Miscanthus Zebrinus is picture-perfect with sunshine highlighting the silky plumes.
Northern gardeners can achieve the look of Pampas Grass (too tender for the north) with Miscanthus.
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.
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.
