Here’s a beautiful setting of Miscanthus gracillimus used as a hedge plant between two residential homes. This clump forming ornamental grass provides an elegant look in this landscape and an ideal natural fence along this property.
Miscanthus produces showy copper colored flower plumes in September and brilliant fall gold foliage. This perennial is zone 5 hardy and is both deer resistant & drought proof once established. Make sure to shear back this hedge plant in the spring to about 12” from the ground. This helps to re-energize the plant for the coming season.
