Comments: This miscanthus has gold stripped leaves from top of leaves to base. In the fall burgundy inflorescences appear above the clump of grass. For most grasses provide full sunlight and a well drained soil. This selection makes an excellent container plant. Nice mixed with other herbaceous plants because of the textural contrast with the stiff, dense foliage of this miscanthus
