Buy Miscanthus sinensis 'Ferner Osten' Chinese silver grass: A magnificent grass for a large garden

This grass dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well drained or sandy
  • Rate of growth: slow to average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Miscanthus 'Ferner Osten' forms an arching clump of slender green folige, which turns copper-red in autumn before dying back for winter. The fireworks however start even earlier in the season, when the plume-like flower panicles emerge in summer. These are initially a rich shade of red, but they turn pinkish and then silvery as they mature over the season. It's a showy grass, that can be used as a stand-alone specimen, but it will also add bit of late drama to the border.

  • Garden care: Cut down to the ground in late winter, before the new foliage appears.

Eventual height & spread

Will Miscanthus sinensis Fern Osten tolerate and flower in less than full sun? It would make a great focal point, but the area I have in mind probably only gets 2-3 hours full sun in the night of summer?

In t'garden

Hello, Unfortunately these plants are happiest in full sun, so I would not recommend it for a spot that only gets a couple of hours sun each day.
