6-8' x 4' wide (division propagated). This fine German cultivar sports gorgeous white feathery plumes as early as late August, blooming well before Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus' and many other Maiden Hair grass varieties. Sturdy, green foliage contrasts strikingly with the white plumes. Not for sale in MA (prohibited), CT, DE, MD, NJ, PA, VA, WV & Washington D.C. where it is considered potentially invasive. Miscanthus is well behaved in the Mid-West and Intermountain West where it continues to be an important ornamental grass.
