Miscanthus sinensis Strictus Porcupine Eulalia Grass Quart Plant
Quart pot from Miscanthus sinensis ‘Strictus’ Porcupine Grass is an upright, stiff grass whose leaves stretch skyward like porcupine spines, thus the name. This grass requires a very long and hot growing season to be able to produce flowers. The pinkish copper plumes appear in early fall. When the seeds mature they become fluffy and are a great accent to the reddish-tan winter foliage. The yellowish white horizontal banding on the green leaves glow when backlit by the early morning or late afternoon sun. Zones 5 to 9.
