Maintenance- Design- Planting Tips
From a design perspective, the delicate foliage and showy plumes of Miscanthus add movement and texture to the garden. The plumes look especially lovely in the fall afternoon light.
We have not experienced any problems with this grass reseeding in the garden. To keep a fresh look, cut Miscanthus to the ground in winter and divide every few years. That is the only maintenance needed for these trouble-free plants. We have found that sometimes Miscanthus takes a year or so to get established in our water wise garden.
