Description: A beautiful tall Miscanthus with silvery-white flower plumes which are held high above the arching, mid-green leaves in Aug-early Sept.

Can make a striking specimen plant if given sufficient space. Also good for a sunny, well drained border.
Climate/Position: Plant in full sun to light shade.
Height/Spread: 1.8 metre x 1.8 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.
