‘Bandwidth’ Japanese silver grass

Miscanthus sinensis 'Bandwidth'

Broad, bright gold bands running along the length of rich, green leaf blades. Useful as a specimen, in the border, or for mass planting. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth appears.

Miscanthus has escaped cultivation in some areas of North America, leading to concern about invasiveness. Although no jurisdictions have banned the use of Miscanthus sinensis, they have been placed on ‘do not plant’ lists in some regions. We recommend gardeners should only plant cultivars (never the straight species) in managed gardens or landscapes where they can be watched and controlled for self-seeding. ‘Bandwidth’ is cross-pollinated, it requires two or more cultivars or species to set seed.
