This most beautiful of all the feather grasses is a hybrid between Miscanthus sinensis and M. transmorrisonensis. From early in the new year until winter arching feathers on slightly arching leafy stems gives ‘Fallingwater’ elegance, movement and form.
A dwarf Miscanthus with bronze feathery flower heads which are produced well clear of the leaves during summer and autumn. It is best when grown in drifts rather than as individual specimens. Sun 60cm x 50cm.
This superb dwarf growing Miscanthus will carry dozens of bronze-pink feathery plumes over arching leaves, green with a silver mid-rib. The flowers age to silver and the foliage changes to orange, gold and burgundy during autumn.
A new selection of variegated Miscanthus much smaller growing than M. ‘Zebrinus’ and unlike the latter is neat and tidy. It has a rigidly upright growth habit and its dark green leaves are heavily banded with gold. It impressed visitors to our garden last summer and autumn.
The true ‘Gracillimus’ not a seed introduction. This makes a 100cm tall clump of slender elegant foliage developing an interesting swirl during the season. In late autumn and winter it has lovely autumn tones of orange, gold and coffee.
This is one of our own seedlings which we selected about fifteen years ago. Less fountain like, more vertical in growth than most feather grasses, it has an excellent separation between flowers and foliage.
The most beautiful of all the Miscanthus with evergreen leaves making 80cm tall by 100cm wide fountain-like mounds. The arching, almost weeping flower heads, displayed well above the foliage, are produced from summer until mid-winter. Fabulous plant. Sun.
