We think Miscanthus 'Strictus' is one of the best ornamental grasses for a suburban garden. Unlike Miscanthus 'Zebrinus', this upright form of zebra grass has no political aspirations...it doesn't lean to the right or left...great where a more structural form is needed. The 3/4" wide green leaves have dramatic horizontal golden bands throughout the leaf, like a sunburned bather in a thong or G-string. M. sinensis 'Strictus' is great as an accent but awesome when used in a large mass...bronze plumes appear in late summer and last until spring, extending a foot above the foliage!
