Japanese Silver Grass, Porcupine Grass 'Gold Bar' 3 Gallon

Japanese Silver Grass, Porcupine Grass 'Gold Bar' 3 Gallon

Miscanthus sinensis

One of the most popular ornamental grass families, Japanese Silver Grass, or Miscanthus, is identified by its whisk-like inflorescence produced late summer to late fall. Clumps form dense habits that make for an excellent garden specimen, hedge, and for cut or dried flower arrangements. 'Gold Bar' is a seedling of 'Strictus' or Porcupine grass, a dense, dramatic, spikey cousin to Zebra grass. Its upright clump of bright green foliage features a multitude of showy gold bands on every leaf from base to tip. The plant presents burgundy plumes in autumn that persist through winter. Combine with Perovskia, Rudbeckia and Joe-Pye Weed. Plant in well-drained, average to poor soil. Water well after planting; maintain 1" of water, once a week the first year. Use slow release fertilizer in spring or at planting. Mulch 1-2" to suppress weeds and retain soil moisture. In general, cut ornamental grasses down as low as possible in late winter. Divide in spring when necessary.
