Re: Miscanthus


Donna,
I do have another Zebra Grass, and wanted another.  My other one is usually a
bit later in showing.  Believe it or not, it is now nearly 2' high!  I think
t'other Miscanthus is going to be mammoth this year.  But it is in a sunny
location.  The garden center had theirs stored in a shady location which had
not yet thawed.   Wouldn't all Zebra Grasses be variegated, hence their name?
My present Zebra Grass has a lighter yellowish color stripe on the outside of
each blade, the inside of the stripe a medium green.  This new Miscanthus was
variegated with a slightly different pattern.  The small blades I saw at the
garden center made it look like almost more of a polka dot pattern, which I
thought would be unusual looking adjacent to the stripey Miscanthus.

I have a miscanthus, not exactly the same as mine is
the variegated version.

It is about 6-7 inches high with new growth here in
Zone 5, IL.  That said, we did have some early warm
weather and most things came out of dormancy early
here.
