Miscanthus sinensis Rigoletto

<i>Miscanthus sinensis</i> ‘Rigoletto’

Miscanthus

If Pygmalion were a gardener, Miscanthus would come to life as fountains, some of them spouting tall and upright to 10 ft. Graceful and robust, they’re favored for their lush foliage and silky terminal panicles. Striking as a single specimen, Miscanthus is also excellent when massed in the perennial bed or a mixed border. Attractive year-round, with fall colors of yellow, purple, scarlet and burgundy, they fade to a lovely warm ivory in winter.

Miscanthus sinensis ‘Rigoletto’ full sun  partial shade

If your garden is short on space, ‘Rigoletto’ is a brightly patterned treasure that you’ll want to squeeze in.

More compact and smaller scaled than ‘Variegatus’, this Kurt Bluemel introduction parades slender blades inscribed with gleaming white vertical stripes. Topped by red-tinged flowering plumes, the loose gracefully arching clump asserts dramatic ivory-toned highlights for the landscape or for a glazed cobalt-blue container.

Blooms August–November.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 2-1/2'–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
