Discovered by Michigan's Thomas Walsh, this dwarf mutation was found on a clump of Miscanthus sinensis. M. 'Little Zebra' makes a tidy, compact mound of green foliage with prominent, yellow horizontal banding that holds well through the summer. In late summer, the attractive plumes emerge wine-purple...a very good addition to smaller gardens.
