From Joy Creek Nursery, 'Gold Bar' is a Mini-Me of 'Strictus'. Aside from its diminutive dimensions and vertical form, the most striking feature of 'Gold Bar' is its extraordinary variegation. Grass maven Dave Babikow, Emerald Coast Growers founder, jokingly calls it "Green Bar" -- because each blade has so much gold crosshatching, it's almost a golden leaf with green highlights. It's got more gold bars than Fort Knox. 'Gold Bar' is probably the slowest-growing Miscanthus, and paradoxically, that's an asset. We've yet to see it grow taller than 3', though some say it "eventually" reaches 5'. Hence, it'll stay content in its assigned space for years. In containers, alone or mixed, it really shines.
