Miscanthus sinensis ‘Strictus’


Miscanthus sinensis ‘Strictus’

Porcupine Grass

Highlight Month:



Growth Habit:

Clumping grass that is dormant in winter.

Growing Requirements:

This grass is very drought tolerant, needing water only to establish. Occasional irrigation will, however, keep its green and cream variegation bright and the overall appearance of the plant more handsome.


Sturdy, upright grass stalks will form a clump from 5 to even 7 feet in height and diameter. The leaves are marked with vivid horizontal bands of cream. Tall, fluffy inflorescences are golden tan and persist at the end of the season.
