Grows much larger than the similarly-coloured Little Zebra Grass. Each leaf is marked with yellow bands.
Zebra Grass grows in clumped bush-balls, its long striped leaves are thinner than other members of the Miscanthus Sinensis family – which give this plant a more delicate quality than its relations. Zebra Grass produces wispy pale-pink flowers in the late summer/early autumn. Thanks to its size, its a popular choice for creating privacy screens and solid backgrounds for smaller plants.
Ornamental Grasses are chosen for their decorative qualities and whether used indoors or outdoors, they can bring a striking diversity to your garden. From round shrubs to tall walls of quivering spikes, ornamental grasses bring new shapes and textures that will contrast against the twisted roots of trees and the blooms of traditional plants and flowers. They are also becoming increasingly popular due to their hardiness against the British weather and their ability to hold their colour through autumn and winter.
