My Favorite Ornamental Grass!
This is Miscanthus sinensus variegatus. It is one of my favorite grasses because of it's size and color. It captures sunlight and glows in the garden. It provides height and structure and creates a bright focal point. It gets 4 or 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide. It is moderately waterwise - needing a good soaking once a week during the summer. This is a "must have" for anyone interested in ornamental grasses!
