Miscanthus Silver Cloud gives a cloud of soft, burgundy flower plumes. Not only the flower plumes are attractive but also the narrow, variegated leaf that gives a silvery effect. Silver Cloud has a long flowering period: from July until the first frost. This variety blooms two to three weeks earlier than other Miscanthus. Silver Cloud also blooms more easily in climates where other Miscanthus do not or hardly bloom, as for example in the Netherlands. Silver Cloud requires little maintenance and is not susceptible to diseases and pests. Silver Cloud is compact and becomes about 80 cm high and 50 cm wide. This ornamental grass is very suitable for in a pot on terrace or balcony but also very nice as a low hedge or for the prairie garden. Place Silver Cloud in the sun or semi-shade in a well-drained soil. Hardy to -23 ºC.
