Plant of the Month : October 2019

Miscanthus

Miscanthus

Originating in Asia, this popular perennial grass is used to great effect in the grass borders around the Park, where we have incorporated a number of interesting varieties. With its clump-forming habit and soft ‘plumes’ of flowers (often silver or dusky pink), it adds structure and movement to the borders. The leaves and stems of some Miscanthus colour up to autumnal tints, combining well with other autumn-flowering perennials.  The grasses will continue to provide a display well into the winter months.
