Variegated Japanese Miscanthus
Miscanthus sinensis ‘Variegatus’
This cultivar has been used in gardens since the early 1900’s and is still popular today. A showy variegated grass, with leaves that are up to 3/4″ in width with a white stripe. It forms a large, arching mound. Give it plenty of room in the garden. In areas with a long growing season, flowers will appear in very late summer or early fall, first with some tints of red but maturing to fluffy white. Will grow in protected sites in zone 4. Clump forming.
