Chinese Silvergrass (Miscanthus Sinensis Early Hybrids) 30 seeds (#1436)

This is truly a bold grass for large spacious gardens. It is a tall, dense, clump-forming grass that originates from eastern Asia. Its long slender arching blades are green with thin white midribs and have surprisingly sharp edges that can easily cut skin.
In the late summer to fall, plants produce tall, upright stems topped with feathery, silver-white to rose-hued plumes that soften and curl as they dry. These remain attractive throughout winter as does the deciduous foliage that turns a warm wheat color when it dies and dries in autumn. Flowers the same year if sown earlier.
Japanese silvergrass prefers full sun and tolerates a wide range of moderately drained soils. Plants form substantial clumps that should be cut to the ground in the spring and divided every three years, if more tame and manageable clumps are desired. Enjoy this grass as a screen, massed in large borders or as a specimen.
