Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A crowd-pleaser through all the seasons, Miscanthus sinensis 'Variegatus' is a deciduous grass that delivers elegant form and texture, variegated foliage, summer flowers and autumn colour that lasts well into the winter.

Tall, stiff stems arise from a dense clump, cascading into a fountain of finely textured leaf blades, strongly variegated green and white. The blades rustle in the breeze, providing movement and catching the sunlight. In September, pinkish flowers open into long, silvery plumes that persist into winter. Meanwhile, the foliage adopts a golden, autumnal hue that also carries through the winter season.

This tall, bold grass can be used as a standalone specimen or planted in a border to add structure, colour and winter interest. It is also useful for softening the hard edges of hard landscaping. Height and spread 1.5-2m (5-6.5ft).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Miscanthus grass in fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun. Miscanthus Grass may resent 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.
