We normally don’t recommend miscanthus grass to our customers because of the species’ tendency to die off in the Wyoming winter. But we got very excited from work done at the University of Minnesota by Dr. Meyer whose research showed this grass was tolerant of zone 4 winters! This is a large clump forming grass with outstanding red tones in both the grass blades and seed heads beginning in mid to late summer. In autumn, the whole plant turns a gorgeous red but the show doesn’t stop there—in winter the seed heads turn an exquisite white. If you love ornamental grasses you need to consider this one!
