Miscanthus Grass

from 3.00

Miscanthus x Giganteus
 Giant Miscanthus Grass.  What a beast!  Gets 12' tall in full sun and good soil, and can handle a wide range of sub-optimal conditions.  Does not spread by seed, but expands slowly and steadily through clumping.  Powerhouse carbon factory, making strong, hollow, useful stalks that die back in the fall.  Stalks can be harvested for rocket stove cooking, long lasting mulch, woven fencing, roofing subsurface, waddle and daub weaving, trellising for peas and others, and and and...  Such a useful plant.  Completely deer resistant, in fact, it can be planted as a deer fence perimeter plant.

We offer rootlets (image on left shows example) which will get you started in a good and small way, and larger clumps which will have multiple shoots in year one.  This plant can be lifted and divided into many more after year 1-2.  Tough plant, can handle incredible hardship and still thrive.

Size:
12' tall or even higher in full sun, will scale to sun available.  We have some 4-6' in partial shade
