Comments: Reddish-brown flowers in fall followed by silver tassel-like inflorescences which are present into winter. This variegated variety may need staking as it is a good grower and tends to flop over more than other miscanthus cultivars. Tolerant of high temperatures and humidity, but not much shade.
