This grass dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well drained or sandy
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This new cultivar is already winning awards - and is sought after for its compact habit and striking red flowerspikes, which appear in profusion above the arching mound of fresh green foliage. Miscanthus Red Cloud is a stunning plant for a larger pot, and it will also add a bright splash of colour to a mixed or herbaceous border, where it will team up well with other late flowering perennials such as Heleniums, Rudbeckias and Crocosmias.

  • Garden care: Cut down to the ground in late winter before the new foliage appears.
