Miscanthus s. BANDWIDTH ('NCMS2B' PPAF)
Common Name: Maiden Grass, Miscanthus
The new gold (banded) standard in dwarf Miscanthus. This compact Maiden Grass has green foliage with pronounced yellow banding. The habit is solidly upright like 'Strictus', but stands half the height. Bandwidth flowers so late in the season it rarely ever sets seed. Try this grass as an accent in the landscape or a thriller in containers. Bred at North Carolina Sate University and introduced through Darwin Perennials.
Miscanthus is versatile from a design standpoint; it can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond's edge. Plant this grass where its wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed.
