Miscanthus sinensis Kaskade

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.

One of the finest summer-blooming Miscanthus, this hearty Ernest Pagels creation draws its namesake from the elegant cascading blooms. Rosy colored and large, measuring nearly 10 in. long, the early-to-unfurl inflorescences feature pendent openly arranged branches lolling a good ways beyond the foliage. Narrow leaves don white midribs, while shaping an upright pillar that come autumn blazes coppery reds and finally bleaches to pewter, in perfect harmony with the mature silvery buff racemes. Eupatorium’s reddish purple domes offer contrasting flower shapes and a union of similar colors.

Blooms July–October.

Size: 6' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
