A really outstanding, compact ornamental grass. If you love the look of Miscanthus, and who doesn't?, then this is a perfect choice for a small space, front of border, courtyard garden or large pot. RHS Harlow Carr has a couple of plants in their winter walk and they are interesting every month of the year, from fresh green leaves in Spring to pinkish flowers which develop into wonderful feathery seed heads which provide movement, to good colour in Autumn. A superb plant.
