Grass Miscanthus sinensis 'Huron Star'
Common Name: Ornamental grass
Compared to the older cultivar 'Silberfeder', 'Huron Star' is similar but with a few notable improvements such as a stronger and more upright habit, purple flowering stems, and brighter fall color. The green leaves have a narrow white midrib and form an upright vase-like clump.
In late summer, large coppery seed heads turn into fluffy creamy tan panicles which are carried atop purple stems well above the foliage. In fall, the foliage turns colorful shades of red, orange, burgundy, and gold.
This is a very tall ornamental grass that is suitable en masse as a backdrop in the landscape or planted singly as a focal point.
Miscanthus is versatile from a design standpoint; it can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond's edge. Plant this grass where its wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed
