Miscanthus sinensis 'Malepartus'
Is anyone growing this or have experience? There seems to be conflicting information between Rick Darkes book and other growers and suppliers as to the color of the flowers although I have heard that 'Malepartus' can vary slightly. My understanding is that it is Red Flowering. I think I have one of these and it is really nice. Just opening are the reddish wine colored blooms and the foliage is nearly 1" wide and turning pink, purple, and yellow with the colder weather. It is nearly six feet tall and very upright stems hold horizontal leaves.
