Miscanthus 'Dronning Ingrid'
Description: A decorative clump-forming perennial grass with vibrant red leaves in autumn. The narrow, erect to arching dark green leaves are flushed purple through summer and then in late summer large panicles of dark red flower spikelets add interest.
Excellent in naturalised or prairie-style planting schemes in sunshine. Leaves move softly in the slightest breeze. Looks good with autumn flowering herbaceous plants.
Climate/Position: Plant in full sun to light shade.
Height/Spread: 1.5 metre x 1 metre clump forming.
Soil Requirements: Any soil preferably moist but drought tolerant.
Pruning: Cut back to ground level in March. The grass and seed heads give good colour and interest through winter months.
Stands out as one of the best forms for red autumn foliage.
