One of the best for autumn foliage colour, this makes neat clumps of leafy stems to 1.2m. Light green in summer, turning into a bonfire of autumn colour from July until the frosts. Thin reddish flowers. Good soil in full sun.
The closest to an evergreen Miscanthus in the UK. In a mild winter most of the leaves are retained but it is still best cut back hard in February. Open habit and masses of pink-silver flowers in autumn to 1.8m. Average soil in sun.
