Miscanthus sinensis 'Gold Bar'
Common Name: Maiden Grass Family: Poaceae (The Grass Family)

Miscanthus sinensis 'Gold Bar'
Zoom In Photo:

'Gold Bar' has the boldest variegation you've yet seen in a Miscanthus. In fact, there may be more gold than green in this cultivar. It also has a compact and upright habit to only four feet making it good for pots and small gardens. Burgundy flower plumes rise just above the foliage in fall. Great for winter interest since the decorative form, albeit straw-coloured, usually lasts until spring.

Asia - China and Japan
