Flame Grass (miscanthus sinensis purpurascens)


My favorite ornamental grass is a variety called Miscanthus sinensis Purpurascens.  It is also called Flame Grass.  I use it quite often in my designs.  Plants form an upright 4-5ft clump of dark green leaves, turning flame-orange and bronze in the fall.  Tall spikes of soft pink-beige flowers develop into silvery plumes which hold up well into the winter.  It is super hardy and can be divided in the spring.  A wonderful addition to any garden!
