Miscanthus- Eulalia

Easily grown hardy perennials with beautiful foliage and sometimes graceful flower plumes as well.

Situation:

These plants deserve much greater popularity for growing in borders, in courtyard gardens or as specimen plants.

Soil:

Any standard garden soil.

Propagation:

By division.

Miscanthus sacchariflorus: Height to 3.5 m, resembles a bamboo plant. The broad leaves arch at the tip. In Great Britain it does not flower.

Miscanthus sinensis: Height to 2 m, silvery-white flower plumes in early to mid autumn. The finest variety is the narrow-leaved form ‘Gracillimus’ – it forms magnificent clumps, 2 m in height, which do, however, not flower; in ‘Zebrinus’ the leaves are cross-banded in green and white; ‘Variegatus’ has multicoloured foliage, striped lengthwise; ‘Silberfeder’ is a readily flowering variety.
