Buy Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus' Chinese silver grass: Statuesque and with a long season of interest

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

    A statuesque, relatively fine foliage grass that flowers late, so will help extend the season of interest in a mixed border well into autumn. It's slender arching leaves have a distinctive white stripe down the centre, and although it does not flower as reliably as other Miscanthus sinensis cultivars, when it does, it produces striking, silky brown flowers that hang like tassels. It is relatively compact, so is ideal for larger patio pots too.

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

This grass has proven to be one of the best looking in my garden and really softens the gravel area I planted it in. It's super attractive and beautiful when back lit by the sun. It even seems unphased by my cat who insists on jumping in it. A good value plant that won't let you down.




So pleased with mine. Would certainly but it again.


Love this grass. Bought it last year and is in a pot at the moment. Although it said it was slow to flower. I had 7 last year and thirteen this. Didn't look too good when it arrived but had only just started regrowing after Winter. Looks great rocking in the wind. Will put it in garden when it outgrows the pot.

Hello. I'm looking for a tall (1-2m) grass for a large container. I want it tall to screen part of my garden. Are there any tall evergreen grasses which would be suitable? Many of the grasses I like are deciduous - would this mean that I would lose the screening by cutting it down every winter (ie how fast would the grass re-grow?)


Hello there Unfortunately grasses of this size which are suitable for growing in a container are going to be cut back down in the winter. The only possibility could be the Anemanthele lessoniana which can grow to about 1m tall, is clump forming with arching foliage. https://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.-Anemanthele-lessoniana/sort.0/
