Plant Features

The Zebrinus Miscanthus (Maiden Grass) Plant is also more commonly known as Zebra Grass. Seeming to be haphazardly placed, horizontal bands of creamy yellow, on spiky, luscious green, grass-like blades seem to glow in the sun's light. You should see them growing in sunny coastal areas where our gardeners enjoy their moderate tolerance to salt. The irregularly positioned, glowing marks are a quite conspicuous backdrop to the pinkish-copper plumes that emerge in late summer to early fall. As the temperatures cool, those plumes will change to white, standing upright above the gracefully bowing foliage.

I ordered three different ornamental grass plants. They all arrived when I expected, were well packaged and in great condition. I'm really pleased with how healthy these plants are and how good they look in my landscape.

Zebra Grass

Both plants where strong and looked healthy. Recently planted and hoping for them to take off and cover the foundation area of the back of our home!
