If you choose only ornamental grasses, there is a danger that the garden will become too green and boring. Attractive planting often requires sufficient variety in colour, shape and height. Combining large and small ornamental grasses with other perennials and a few shrubs creates a fascinating ensemble. Therefore, mix the ornamental grasses with richly flowering border plants. Although we find the Miscanthus sinensis Strictus very beautiful as the only plant in a border. The plant then radiates tranquillity and simplicity, but is still very special because of its beautiful colour.
What is Miscanthus sinensis Strictus suitable for
The zebra grass, also known as porcupine grass, grows upright and reaches a height of up to 150cm. This colourful leafy reed has linear, medium-green leaves with horizontal, transverse yellow stripes. It is ideally suited for use as a hedge plant or specimen plant. Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus' certainly brings colour to the border and can be combined well with other grasses.
Zebra Reed Grass in Your Garden
Give this prickly reed a sunny and dry spot in the garden and chances are it will grow beautiful reddish-brown panicles in a warm summer. In spring, the old leaves can be cut back to about 20cm to make room for new growth.
