Miscanthus sinensis purpurascens

Flame Grass, Purple Silver Grass, Japanese Silver Grass

Large, upright, clumping grasses with striking foliage and eye-catching flowering plumes rise above the arching leaves. Foliage and flowers sway gracefully in the wind while reflecting the sunlight. Use plumes in dried flower arrangements. Plant in mass plantings or mixed with other perennials or shrubs. Many types available. Divide clumps for new plants and to rejuvenate growth. Cut back hard in late winter before new growth begins. Wear gloves and long sleeves to protect yourself from grass blade cuts.
