Miscanthus transmorrisoniensis

Miscanthus transmorrisoniensis alongside the cream coloured Canna indica 'Eureka' and Saccarum officinarum 'Purpureum' purple leaf sugar cane with orange flowered Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm' and white Impatiens in the foreground.Some blue grey Aloe speciosum are in pots in the right hand corner

Graceful Miscanthus transmorrisoniensis with big Aloe marlothii 

The evergreen form of the Asian native Miscanthus Grass is one of the best. It grows to about 1.5 metres and when in flower, the soft plumed flowers catch the slightest breeze and really sparkle and dance in the sun. It makes a great contrast plant when set alongside stiff or robust Aloes,Yuccas or Agaves but is equally at home amongst tall flowering perennials such as Cannas.
2017 update: I always have stock of this Miscanthus
