Miscanthus sinensis Scout™ Earns a “Good Behavior” Badge!

Posted by John Friel on Nov 17th 2021

The world’s premier genus of ornamental grasses includes lots of stunning varieties. We offer three that have a unique advantage: They’re infertile. They can’t self-sow and pop up where they’re not welcome.

We’ll spotlight them all, one at a time. First up: Scout™.

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.

Culture Notes

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.

Maintenance: Wait until late winter/early spring to cut back. Miscanthus brings movement and structure to the garden even when dormant.

Scout (‘M77’) PP30402 is an ECG exclusive, and one of our favorites from the UGA Infertile Grass Collection. You’ll see why when you Scout it out. It comes in your choice of beefy 38-cell or economical 72-cell liners from Emerald Coast Growers – your easy choice!
