Maiden silvergrass (Miscanthus sinensis) 'Malepartus'

An amazing old cultivar; the standard by which others are judged. Vigorous and free-flowering. Forms large striking columns of silver veined broad foliage & flowerheads of the darkest purple red fading silver.  Flowering earlier than most Miscanthus, they delicately change to silver as they mature and provide excellent winter interest. They rise gracefully above an elegant foliage of narrow, arching, green leaves with white midribs, which turn beautiful shades of yellow in fall. A fabulous focal point in the garden!
Standing out beautifully in the garden, its fine-textured foliage sways gracefully in the slightest breeze and delicately softens any landscapes.
