Miscanthus ‘Kleine Fontaine’

I am totally delighted with this ornamental grass; Miscanthus sinensis ‘Kleine Fontaine’

I bought it in August at a Plant Hunters Fair

And despite the torrential rain and high winds that we have experienced over the past few weeks

Today, when the rain stopped it looked just fine!

(Unlike the rest of the garden)

    II hope my grasses do as well when they are planted away from the shelter of the wall in the spring. Has Shed Man intalled the accent lights for night time yet!

    I so agree about miscanthus.It looks stunning all summer,then carries on whatever the weather,still looking great, and then the frost comes and it becomes magical. I have M.malpartus and M.Morning Light – both lovely.

  3. How strange that it should look so unscathed. I would expect it to be flattened.
    My new Miscanthus has apparently disappeared without trace since I planted it last year. My staring at the spot on a daily basis has not produced any results 🙂

    While I was away I saw some ‘old mans beard’ which I haven’t seen since I was a kid. What is its real name I would love to plant some in the garden. Is it a kind of grass?
