‘Huron Sunrise’ in Ottawa

One of my absolute favourite ornamental grasses is Miscanthus ‘Huron Sunrise’. It looks fabulous in the summer displaying bright green leaves with a silver center. In mid August burgundy tips appear. In the winter you are left with a tall strong grass that adds much needed winter interest to the Ottawa garden.

Here is a shot of the grass in winter that gives you a good idea of its height and strength (November 2012).
