  • Drought Tolerant


  • Growth rate: medium-fast
  • Grow in 1, 2, or 3 gallon or larger (works well in all sizes)
  • Grow in well-drained soil
  • Water needs: keep evenly moist
  • Fertilizing: use a slow release, medium-rate fertilizer
  • Possible pests: aphids, spidermites, Anthracnose
  • May need fungicide treatments to control or prevent Anthracnose during hot, humid periods.
  • Overwintering: hardy plant; but as with all Miscanthus, do not overwater in winter. Too much water can weaken plants or cause death.
