Miscanthus sinensis 'Rigoletto'
Common Name: Maiden Grass Family: Poaceae (The Grass Family)
| Zoom In Photo:
This beautiful variegated maiden grass has narrow delicate leaves with creamy-white variegation that forms a beautiful, compact, arching clump. Great in the garden but also with outstanding performance in containers. Miscanthus are one of the best grasses for year-round beauty: new green shoots in the spring become tall linear leaves that form an elegant clump by midsummer. Attractive flowers emerge in fall. In winter the leaves turn straw colour and provide much interest.
