Tall fountain grass (Miscanthus sinesis) April 13, 2012

This tall fountain grass grows lucscious green blades 5′ tall by summer, and tops itself with beautiful white feathery plums in the fall.  I love mine in winter — golden, covered in snow — so I wait until February to cut them back.  A wonderful four-season plant.

Full sun.  Great for screening.
