Does anyone know what type of grass this is? It's about 3 feet tall with a reddish/brown dried blades and white sort of curly plumes. I'm guessing it's a type of miscanthus, but I can't find any pictures online or in my landscaping books that look anything like it.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It looks like Miscanthus sinensis, from the plumes. The foliage color suggests var. purpurascens, but it's hard to say for sure.
