Miscanthus Zebra (3 Gallon Container)
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun
to part shade. Tolerant of a wide range of soils from well-drained sandy
soils to the heavy clays present in much of the St. Louis area. Prefers
moist soils. Best in full sun. Less vigorous with decreased flowering and
tendency to flop in too much shade. Tolerant of summer heat and
humidity. Clumps slowly expand in circumference by short rhizomes,
but retain tight clump shape. Foliage should be left standing throughout
the winter for visual interest and to provide protection for the crowns.
Cut foliage to the ground in late winter just before new shoots appear.
Propagate by division of the crown.
