Silver Grass

About a year ago I was given a couple dozen five gallon pots of Silver Grass, or miscanthus sinensis after they had been donated to a non-profit function I was working on for decoration. They were almost all brown and in desperate need of attention. We planted them throughout the SJC garden as background foliage. They died back and after a year are finally in their graceful glory once again. I highly recommend them as they are drought tolerant and add a bright element in addition to movement to the garden beds.

That is beautiful - how tall does it get?

Phillip, it gets up to four or five feet depending on the location.

I had the same question as Phillip. It looks really interesting.
