Miscanthus giganteus in the garden
I have two gallon sized divisions of M. giganteus and have planted them in the back of a bed along a fence. The grass is about a foot from the fence with all new growth facing away from the fence. I have a recently planted Black Lace Elderberry three to four feet infront of the M. giganteus. Am I just asking for trouble in a couple years? I am not sure how fast this grass will grow to fill the space or if it will eventually encroach on the Elderberry and compete for water and nutrients.
Does M. giganteus fit into beds or boarders or is it better off as a specimen plant?
