Miscanthus lutarioriparius (Syn. Triarrhena)

This is new to cultivation in the UK, from China. A truly huge exotic windproof grass reaching 5 to 6m tall; the giant of the genus. The culms lose their lower leaves as they grow taller and are pale mauve in colour, turning pink in autumn. It has a running rhizome, so dig in a barrier if it is important to keep it from spreading too far or just grow it in a large pot overwintered with a cover. Very hardy when planted and easy in sun or semi-shade.

Pot size: 2L
