A compact form of "zebra grass" with pale yellow bands across mid green leaves on stems to 1.5m. Silken golden flowers produced in autumn in a warm site.
Of the medium sized Miscanthus, 'Hinjo' is probably the best of the zebra-striped ones to choose making a dense clump to 60cm across in 5 years.
Raised in California, USA this is typical of many American varieties in growing perfectly well in the UK but not producing much flower most years. If you are lucky enough to have a warm, sheltered garden then it will probably flower well enough, for the rest of us we need to wait for a really warm, long, summer!
