Miscanthus sinensis Scout™ - Earns a "Good Behavior" Badge!
Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on Mar 10th 2023
The world’s premier genus of ornamental grasses includes lots of stunning varieties. We offer one of our favorites that has a unique advantage: it's infertile. Miscanthus Scout™ can’t self-sow and pop up where it's not welcome.
Standing an impressive, but manageable, 5 – 6’ tall, this beauty features slender green blades accented with clean white midribs. The lush inflorescence is a gorgeous reddish-brown.
Miscanthus can be slow to emerge in spring in colder areas. Be patient: It grows vigorously once it gets going.
Exposure: Full sun.
Hardiness: Zones 5 – 10.
Landscape: Performs best in fertile, well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Fairly drought-tolerant once established.
Scout™ is an ECG exclusive, and one of our favorites from the UGA Infertile Grass Collection. It comes in your choice of beefy 38-cell or economical 72-cell liners from Emerald Coast Growers – your easy choice!
