Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus'
Zebra Grass

Zebra Grass has striking cross-blade yellow variegation to its foliage, and is still commonly used in modern landscapes, reaching 7 feet tall. However, superior cultivars of similar variegation should be substituted when available, as they are less likely to lodge (fall over). These include 'Strictus' (Porcupine Grass, to 7 feet), 'Puenktchen' (Little Dot Grass, to 4 feet), and 'Hinjo' (Little Nicky Grass, to 3 feet).
