A cultivar from Ernst Pagels
Miscanthus sinensis 'Grosse Fontäne' is an imposing grass with long, arching leaves which have a white midrib.
Its flowers are equally spectacular. Abundant feathery inflorescences that start off pink and end up silver later in the autumn.
In the garden, we can use it:
- as a backdrop for a perennial bed together with Cortaderia and other Miscanthus;
- planted alone, as a focus plant, to show off its splendid architectural habit.
Gardener's tip: light is a key factor in a decor. The touch of evening or morning light illuminates the inflorescences of grasses and if we add a light morning frost in the winter it's simply sublime!
