Miscanthus sinensis 'Huron Sunrise'
Common Name: Grass-Ornamental, Miscanthus
Zone 4 to 9, Full sun to part shade
Plants reach 5 to 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide. The most profusely blooming Miscanthus. Though the green leaves with silver mid-ribs form beautiful clumps, the most outstanding feature of this new cultivar is its flowers. In late summer, a profusion of full, burgundy plumes sweep the sky. The plant maintains its graceful form throughout winter, providing tremendous winter interest. Hardy to zone 4, this variety is great for northern climates.
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 its wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed.
