Starting Miscanthus grass from seed

candicenovitzke(4)May 16, 2011

Wanting to know if it's possible for us to sow some Miscanthus grass from seed directly into some bare soil right now. We're in Zone 4, Wisconsin.

And if so, any suggestions on where to get a variety that's attractive but not ridiculously invasive? LOL

No Miscanthus will be invasive in your zone. You'll be lucky to get it to bloom, much less to self-sow.

I'd try Miscanthus sinensis 'New Hybrids,' 'Early Hybrids' or 'Late Hybrids.' They are reliable germinators, and generally available seeds.

There are probably no popular named Miscanthus which will grow true from seed in your zone.
