Grass, Miscanthus sinensis 'Silberfeder'

Grass, Silver Feather

Give this grass plenty of room! The tall, variegated Silver Feather grass originates from eastern Asia and has a graceful arching habit. Its long slender blades are dark green with razor thin white midribs and turn a beautiful wheat color in autumn. In the late summer to fall, Miscanthus sinesis 'Silberfeder' produces large feathery, silvery-pink plumes that stand well above the arching foliage and remain attractive throughout winter. This grass can be used at the edge of a pond, for massing or screening, or even in large containers.
