Miscanthus sinensis 'Little Zebra' is a dwarf selection of Miscanthus with stunning green foliage with creamy yellow banding. The foliage forms a mid-sized mound. 'Little Zebra' is well-suited to smaller gardens, borders, or to growing in containers. Plumes are deep pink to red, and bloom from late summer into the autumn, gradually turning silver for the winter. Foliage dries and turns buff-coloured in late fall. A wonderful cut flower. A perfect addition to Japanese themed gardens. Origin: Asia.
