Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus'


Availability : Available

Description :

Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus' is a superb ornamental grass with a regal habit and clearly variegated, green and yellow striped foliage. Its dense, upright tufts make it look like a porcupine!

Light red inflorescences which become silvery with age.

It goes very well with Helianthus, Deschampsia, Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm', Echinacea paradoxa, Carex muskingumensis and Inula magnifica.

Grows well in containers in sun to partial shade.

Grow in the sun or light shade in good garden soil, which is not too dry in the summer.

Maintenance: cut down to 10 cm at the end of winter before the new growth. Its capacity to withstand wind and snow make it an ideal grass for winter settings.

Synonym: Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus Strictus'.

Note: Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus' differs from Miscanthus 'Strictus' in its looser habit, which may require staking, and less noticeable variegation.
