Miscanthus sinensis 'strictus' - Porcupine Grass

Late summer is approaching in Utah and the warm-season ornamental grasses are starting to put on their show.  They provide interest in the garden from late July all the way through the winter.  Here is a photo of a stunning tall Miscanthus sinensis 'strictus' - porcupine grass - with striped leaves.  In northern Utah, porcupine grass will reach 4 or 5 feet in height and 3 or 4 feet in width.  It needs water only once a week during the hottest times of summer.  Excellent for a water wise landscape!  Here is a link to another post about porcupine grass and zebra grass.
