Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
This flamboyant grass makes a superb focal point for summer borders. The tall stems topped with feathery plumes of rich copper red look magnificent above clumps of narrow, green, arching foliage. The stately flower spikes of Miscanthus 'Purpurascens' are most numerous following a long hot summer. This hardy perennial is easy to grow and needs very little maintenance. The attractive seed heads also make fantastic additions to cut flower arrangements or can be left intact to provide winter interest in the garden. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 100cm (39"). Supplied in 9cm pots.

Grow Miscanthus grass in fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun. Maiden Grass resents soils that sit wet in winter. Prior to planting, improve drainage on particularly heavy soils by incorporating plenty of well rotted compost and grit.
Feed and water Miscanthus plants regularly until fully established. Cut back dead foliage and stems to ground level in early spring before new growth appears. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Miscanthus grass every third year to maintain their vigour.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
