Miscanthus purpurascens

All Andrew's Plants has moved to

You can find this post here on my new site for the full post and to leave comments.

"Flame Grass" has never been a favourite of mine, the plumes are not as nice as a lot of other Miscanthus varieties and the fall colour has never blown me away. Here it is though looking about as good as it ever does, which is actually not too bad. I guess it's nice too for its slightly narrower shape than any other Miscanthus.


  1. I really like this grass...but it does lose something when planted alone, in a larger grouping, with other colorful fall plants, however, it can be really stunning. :-)

  2. They've planted huge stands of that along the south end of Lake Shore Drive here in Chicago. It looks so beautiful right now!
