Perennial grasses are a common fixture in gardens and containers everywhere, adding a classy but non-intrusive touch to any variety of plants. Miscanthus is a particularly unique variety treasured for its abundant and gorgeous flowers in the summer. Few grasses bloom as beautifully as miscanthus- this species could work well as a classy and simple centrepiece in the garden all on its own.
Miscanthus is fairly easy to grow. It will thrive in full sun, and enjoys well-draining soil. It’s tolerant of excess moisture, dry conditions and soil that varies from poor to fertile, making it easy to choose a growing location.
