Product Description

Miscanthus 'Purpurascens'
Common Name: Grass-Ornamental, Flame Grass
Zone 4 to 9, Full sun to part shade
Plants reach 4 to 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide. One of the very best Miscanthus cultivars available today. Its fantastic fall color, upright habit, early flowering time, and extreme cold hardiness have certainly earned it this recognition.

From early to midseason, the leaves are a pleasant grey-green. In the fall, they turn a brilliant reddish orange, hence the name 'Flame Grass'. The seed heads begin to appear in late summer with magenta hues. As winter approaches, they tranorm into silky white panicles which are especially lovely when backlit by the early morning or late afternoon sun.

M. 'Purpurascens' is easy to grow, though it is not drought-tolerant and suffers in extreme heat. Supplemental watering and placement in partial shade will help offset any heat stress. This ornamental will grow in almost any soil, from loose sand to heavy clay, and does not require good drainage. Fertilization is not necessary either. Divide this in spring or early summer to give it time to establish its roots before winter arrives. Only in the mildest of climates should this be divided in the fall. .

Not available for shipment to CA and NY

Thirty (30) plants per flat (or tray). Approximate Plug Measurements: 4.25 inches deep x 2 inches wide.
