An old variety with arching green foliage banded horizontally in light-yellow but much more flowing and relaxed than strictly upright ‘Strictus’

    A graceful, fountainous grass that takes its name from the horizontal cream bands on the leaves. Striking, silky, finger-like flowers bloom in late summer, and stay for months, giving this plant dramatic winter presence. Use as a specimen, or in small groups at the back of a perennial border.

      Miscanthus not flowering

      Afernoon, I bought a grass from you about 3 or 4 years back. It is a Miscanthus sacchariflorus. It has thrived well, is green and lush, but to date, it hasn't flowered. Am I doing anything wrong? Are you able to give me some advice please? I must add that I have bought a number of plants from you since you set up your web site and have been delighted with them all. The quality of each plant is excellent, as is the packaging and delivery. Regards Marion

      • A:

        Hello Marion, There are a number of reasons why plants don't flower including too much shade, not enough water or nutrients, or pruning at the wrong time of the year. It can also be caused by the plant putting on new root growth instead of focusing its energies on producing flowers. I am not really sure why your Miscanthus has not produced flowers, but you can often give them a bit of a push by feeding with a high potash fertiliser. Best regards and thanks for the positive feedback. Helen Plant Doctor
