Ornamental grasses are an important part of the
autumn garden, giving structure, form and texture. I have several different varieties, but the one I've got the most of is probably Miscanthus. These come
in a wide variety of heights and leaf and flower colourings. All of them have the same shape of flowers, which vary in colour from silvery white to dark
maroon. The one pictured is unfortunately not named, having been bought labelled as a different type of grass (Panicum "Warrior"). Once it flowered,
it was obvious to me that it was not a Panicum, but a Miscanthus. However, it's a very healthy plant, and flowers with great vigour, giving a lovely show
every year, so I'm not sorry I have it!
