Miscanthus sinensis ‘Kleine Fontäne’

A wonderfully structural plant as it forms a quite tight vase-like shape with gracefully cascading narrow strap-like leaves. The flowers are held rather more stiffly than on Miscanthus sinensis ‘China’, so it holds its shape very well, even under snow, but is perhaps a little less “pretty”. Planted at the back of the pond border. Rather curiously, it grows about 20cm taller than ‘China’ too.
