Cultivar Notes - 'Ferner Osten'
Compact, strong growing variety with dark foliage boasting a bright silver mid-rib. Beautiful reddish, copper-colored inflorescences unfurl in late July into August, eventually turning cream. Good winter interest.
Genus Notes - Miscanthus
These large Grasses add texture to fresh and dried arrangements. All have winter beauty to equal their summer charm, and they are not the least bit picky about soil.
Series Notes - Warm Season Grasses

Warm season grasses include: Andropogon, Calamagrostis brachytricha, Carex, Cortaderia, Erianthus, Hakonechloa, Miscanthus, Panicum, Pennisetum, Schizachyrium, and Sporobolus.
