Miscanthus Sinensis Kleine Silberspinne Grasses
Miscanthus sinensis Kleine Silberspinne (Chinese Silver Grass)
A beautiful compact variety of Miscanthus well suited to both large and small gardens. The eyecatching silvery mounds of foliage have a conspicuous central white stripe along the centre. Late in the season masses of feathery flower plumes emerge from the foliage, reddish brown and silky at first before fading to silver. A beautiful and shapely grass that brings impact and drama to the garden late in the season without taking up too much space.
Grows well in full sun, any well drained soil.
