This superb Kurt Bluemel introduction has become our favorite miscanthus to use as a large specimen in the garden. The green leaves, with a pronounced central stripe, are arranged to give the effect of a lovely weeping habit and the sturdy 7'+ clumps of Miscanthus 'Andante' are topped from late summer through fall with a stunning plume display. Because of the rebloom trait, we suspect Miscanthus transmorrisonensis to be the daddy. This is one of those deer-resistant grasses that you simply can't appreciate until you see it in person...a real winner. In our trials, this has not produced any stray garden seedlings.
