<i>Miscanthus transmorrisonensis</i>

Miscanthus

If Pygmalion were a gardener, Miscanthus would come to life as fountains, some of them spouting tall and upright to 10 ft. Graceful and robust, they’re favored for their lush foliage and silky terminal panicles. Striking as a single specimen, Miscanthus is also excellent when massed in the perennial bed or a mixed border. Attractive year-round, with fall colors of yellow, purple, scarlet and burgundy, they fade to a lovely warm ivory in winter.

Miscanthus transmorrisonensis full sun  partial shade

Donít let the clunky name fool you. Collected from seed at 9500 ft. on Taiwan’s Mount Daxue by Paul Meyer and C. Ferris Miller and introduced in 1979, this is the most graceful of all the Miscanthus. Pendent, silky silver flowers, held on long gently arching stems look like water flowing from a fountain of narrow, glossy green foliage. This clumping grass remains evergreen in warmer climates and can be positioned as a lone specimen, but best shows its low weeping profile and artful beauty when massed, in a raised area or on a slope with Helianthus ‘Santa Fe’ and Aster ‘Raydon’s Favorite’ nearby.

Blooms late July – November.

Size: 4'–5' high x 4'–6' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
