Miscanthus sinensis 'Dixieland' (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Grass-Ornamental
A dwarf form of Miscanthus s. 'Variegatus' with very similar green and white variegated foliage but a shorter, more compact growth habit. This selection should not need staking like its taller cousin. It provides a strong white element to the landscape which is especially pronounced when planted in front of larger shrubs or evergreens. The silky pink plumes which appear in late summer are very showy. A good choice for containers.
Easy to grow and is a good choice for beginners, Miscanthus will grow in most any soil, from loose sand to heavy clay, and does not require good drainage. Grow this in full sun except in warmer regions where some afternoon shade is best. Fertilization is not necessary.
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 where it is a wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed.
