Miscanthus sinensis ‘Zebrinus’ Zebra Grass

Miscanthus sinensis  ‘Zebrinus’ Zebra Grass

Zebra Grass is a huge favorite of mine and well deserving.. It is a beautiful upright clumping ornamental grass.  This type of grass has a arching habit . It is marked by conspicuous horizontal bands of yellow on the foliage.  In summer those bands can have the appearance of red blothes.. Very Pretty!

The plumes Produces copper colored flowers in mid September. This is a must have grass.. It does also tolerate some shade in our area.. This is a warm season grass , the grass will grow to  7 feet,- 8 feet with flower, sun, dry, flowers September, Zones 5-9, Origin: Asia

Tips: Make sure you water in well if you have a dry fall .. this will help it to not die back, and protects it thru the fall and winter months Zebra Grass is really a nice fall and winter accent plant.. It is best in my opinion to leave the grass alone till  spring,  this also adds spectacular winter interest.

Happy Gardening
