This is an unpatented plant- the Illinois strain of Miscanthus Giganteus. Sometimes spelled Gigantus , and refered to as Miscanthus x Giganteus, Giant Silver Reed Grass, or Miscanthus Floridus.

Hardy zones 4-9. One of the tallest grasses, 12-14 foot tall at maturity. Leaves grow up and gracefully cascade outward. Showy spikelets form a needle like silvery-white awn in autumn. Very ornamental, lasting through the winter. Very useful for screening, hedges and specimen plantings.

Plant in average soils in full sun, will take part shade, but you may not have as tall growth. Will grow in most any soil, but fertile soils are best. Likes lots of moisture, but not grow in standing water. MUST HAVE GOOD DRAININAGE FOR THE FIRST YEAR TO SURVIVE, BUT ALSO GOOD MOISTURE. Non-invasive, but this grass is still a vigorous type, roughly tripling in root mass in one seasons growth.
