Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus' Ornamental Grass at Lovegrass Farm in P.E.I.

Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus' at Annapolis Royal Botanical Gardens in mid-August
Keep in mind it takes several years for a plant to fill out to this size!
Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus' is another antique cultivar that has irregularly spaced horizontal bands of cream yellow variegation (commonly referred to as Zebra striped).  It can grow to 7 ft. or 2.1 m. tall with copper-red-tinted flowers in the fall.  Zebrinus makes a great specimen plant or can be mixed in borders.  They are limited in quantity for sale as well.

  1. The Botanical Garden in Annapolis Royale was the garden I toured in the Fall. I should send you some photos I took of their ornamental grass display...or did I????? Keep up the hard work Paulette. I think I'll be coming out this weekend with a couple of my girlfriends. I look forward to seeing you.
