The most graceful Miscanthus.
This species, which was introduced as a horticultural plant in 1979, is native to the grassy uplands of Taiwan. There are two differences between Miscanthus transmorrisonensis and Miscanthus sinensis:
- in temperate climates its keeps it brilliant green foliage even in the winter. What a scoop!
- its silky, silvery inflorescences are borne on long, elegant stalks which grow far out from the tuft of foliage.
Height of the foliage: 90 cm.
Height of the inflorescences: 180 cm
In the garden we take advantage of its fountain-like habit to plant it on higher ground (a slope or embankment) together with autumn flowering plants (Aster, Helianthus) or on its own at the edge of a bed.
