A larger variety of Miscanthus, the Miscanthus giganteus ‘Alligator’ or Banded Japanese Silver grass is a tall herbaceous perennial plant with narrow, arching green leaves marked with golden-yellow patterning. Airy plumes of silver white flowers appear from late Summer and can last right through to the beginnings of Winter, providing a long-lasting display. A great screening plant due to its height and upright, architectural form.

Plant in moderately fertile, well-drained soils and keep in full sun. Hardy and drought tolerant once established, thriving in exposed coastal locations as well. Does not tolerate waterlogged soil during the Winter, which may cause root damage.
