Description

This low maintenance perennial ornamental grass is perfect for extending the season of interest in your garden right through autumn. Miscanthus ‘Purpurascens’ grows quickly between spring and summer, forming an attractive clump of mauve-tinged grassy foliage with tall upright stems which provide a good screen. By late summer, plumes of feathery pale pink flowers burst from the top of each stem, before going on to develop fantastic coppery hues through autumn and into winter. Tolerant to coastal and exposed sites, this sturdy and resilient grass is happy to grow in most locations, whether at the back of a mixed border or as part of a gravel garden planting scheme. The flowers also make a striking addition to indoor bouquets. Height: 1.5m (5’). Spread: 1m (3’).

How to Grow
Grow Miscanthus grass in fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun. Miscanthus Grass may resent soils that sit wet in winter. Prior to planting, improve drainage on particularly heavy soils by incorporating plenty of well rotted compost and grit.
More Info
Feed and water Miscanthus plants regularly until fully established. Cut back dead foliage and stems to ground level in early spring before new growth appears. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Miscanthus grass every third year to maintain their vigour.
