Grass - Strictus (Miscanthus Sinensis)

Name Grass - Strictus
Botanical Name Miscanthus Sinensis

You've seen this, we're sure. Now you know how to ask for it. But, it's also been called Porcupine grass by some. We think that's because the blades take on the appearance of quills.The foliage has bright yellow variegation in horizontal bands. Grows 5-6 ft tall. Copper flowers bloom in the fall and turn tan once there's a frost. Works well as a cut flower or leave it for terrific winter interest!
