This perennial with deciduous foliage propagates through non-spreading rhizomes.
A garden giant! After two to three years, Miscanthus 'Giganteus' matures into a dense hedge which is useful as a design element in the garden, or as a backdrop for a border, to accompany shrubs or simply to hide the neighbour's unsightly wall.Or even, just to play in the wind!
In short, our garden giant has all the advantages of a bamboo, but without the disadvantages and it stays well within its limits (1 square metre).
Grow in the sun in all soil types. Miscanthus 'Giganteus' does, however, prefer fertile, moist, well-drained soil. Height: 2.50 m.
