Gold Bar Maiden Grass (Miscanthus sinensis 'Gold Bar') is truly a show-stopper and a sensational variety with its heavily banded gold stripes, from the base of the grass to its top! The horizontal markings are much closer together than other banded Miscanthus and they give Gold Bar a dramatic look!

Its exceptionally upright and compact habit makes this new grass perfect for large containers or in small urban gardens! Burgundy inflorescences appear just above the foliage in mid-fall. Gold Bar is slower growing, especially in the spring when these warm-season grasses can be a bit sluggish to show their green new growth.

Miscanthus is unrivaled in the diversity and beauty of its flowers, foliage, autumn colors, and winter presence. It is extraordinarily adaptable to many conditions and purposes in the garden throughout USDA growing zones 5 through 9! Plus, Miscanthus grass is easy to grow and is a good choice for beginners.

Planting and Application:

Use it alone as a specimen to create spikey variegated and dramatic color and texture to the landscape! The striped upright blades can be used in modern and formal gardens to add visual accents and architecture to the landscape! Create a breathtaking backdrop or focal point in the mid-to-back border, or create a living fence or screen with these highly Ornamental Grasses!

It is easy to grow, and its intense color almost glows in the sun! Tuck into the sunny Rock Garden for vertical drama or as a visual barrier along the sidewalk to divide your front yard from the road. The texture looks great lining a walkway or your driveway in straight rows, zigzags, or undulating waves that draw the eye and boost curb appeal!

  • Dramatic Spiked Gold Banded Green Blades
  • Upright Growing Warm-Season Grass
  • Burgundy Fluffy Panicle Plumes
  • Wonderful Four-Season Interest
  • Specimens, Focal Points, Backdrops & En Masse Accents

#ProPlantTips For Care

Ornamental Grass grows upright in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. This Maiden Grass also tolerates partial shade but may be more arching and fountain-like. It is very hardy and low growing, it tolerates a wide range of soil types, is moderately drought tolerant once established, and holds up to wind and snow! Prune the clumps in early spring and clean out their crowns of debris for a fresh start each year. But be patient with warm-season grasses since they take their time emerging in the spring until temperatures are just right.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Grows Anywhere, Even in Wet Soil
  • Plant in Well-Drained Soil
  • Adaptable To a Wide-Range of Conditions
  • Prune Early Spring
