Miscanthus s. 'Sieberfeder'
[Silver Feather Grass]
Height Light
6 - 8 ft. Sun Late Summer 5 - 9

Large, feathery plumes that emerge a shimmering pinkish-silver in late summer give this grass its name, 'Silver Feather'. These flowers stand well above the clump of foliage, making them visible from quite a distance. The leaves appear to be solid green from a distance, though they do have white midribs. Give this grass lots of room to grow; the leaves tend to arch downward to the point that they may need to be staked.

Care: Miscanthus is easy to grow and is a good choice for beginners. It will grow in most any soil, from loose sand to heavy clay, and does not require good drainage. Grow this grass in full sun except in warmer regions where some afternoon shade is best. Fertilization is not necessary. Divide Miscanthus in spring or early summer to give it time to establish its roots before winter arrives. Only in the mildest of climates should it be divided in the fall.
