Taking orders for fall.2022, We anticipate harvest to begin in early Nov. Please note that fall planting will be a better fit for more southern states. Since shipping will be well into colder weather, colder states may have issues with the ground freezing before roots are available. Those from colder states may choose to pot up plants and store in an unheated outbuilding over winter. Please plan accordingly when ordering for fall.
MISCANTHUS GIGANTEUS, Quantity of 10-1/2 gallon size, bare root to semi bare root divisions (size is comparable to a small handful of root). Expect growth of 6-8' of height, 1' of width, though plants will look sparce the first year. Recommended spacing when planting is 1.5 - 2' apart.
This ia an unpatented variety of Miscanthus x Giganteus. also spelled gigantus at times, and can be refereed to Giant Silver Grass, or Miscanthus Floridus.
Hardy zones 4-9. This is one of the tallest ornamental grasses, growing 12-14' mature. Lush green leaves cascade down the stems, which are similar in appearance to bamboo. Stiff, erect stems show of silvery awns of plume in autumn. Grass stands well through the winter and works well for privacy screening, hedges and specimen plants.
Popular with outdoorsmen for cover crops, wildlife habitat and bedding. Works well for farming applications as well, useful as animal bedding and lasts longer than straw.

It is somewhat drought resistant once established.

All existing vegetation should be moved before planting and week control is necessary as it establishes. This is a warm season grass and usually does not start top growth until temps are in the mid 60's. We have noticed not all plants sprout at the same time the first year out. Patience is required to see a uniform planting.
