Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gold Bar’ is compact, clump-forming ornamental grass with dense, dramatic bright green leaf blades and cross-banded with yellow horizontal stripes. Feathery white flower panicles appear above the foliage during late summer to autumn. Good in beds, borders, coastal, city or courtyard gardens. Can add colour & dimension to beds, reaching a maximum mature height of 100 cm and spread of 80cm. Licensed Plant Breeders Rights(PBR) reserved.
Suggested Care: Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gold Bar’ is suitable for well-drained soil in a sunny position but it will tolerate partial shade. Mulch with organic material in the autumn to protect roots and shoots from freezing. Once shoots begin to re-appear in spring, we suggest to cut them back to about 10cm, giving the plant a rejuvenating lease of life. Can be divided in early spring once maturity is established. Protect from excessive winter wet. Hardy plant suitable for Irish weather.
Planting Instructions: Break up the soil well before planting and dig a hole twice the size of the pot. Remove plant from the pot by tapping the rim of the pot in ‘up side down’ position. Do not pull the plant from the pot. Firm soil after planting and water regularly for the first month. As this is a tall variety, you should leave space between other plants.
