Originating from S.E. Asia
An early and free – flowering Miscanthus, often as early as mid-July, producing fluffy, wine red flowering heads, becoming pink as the season progresses before fading to a ghostly silver in late autumn. These remain on the grass, carried on strong, upright stems throughout winter, adding architectural accents during the bleakest months. An old cultivar, deservedly remaining one of the most popular miscanthus.
Cut back in March, before new growth appears.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun.
