Miscanthus sacchariflorus / Ogi オギ

Miscanthus sacchariflorus is a king-sized perennial on the water's edges that grow up to 2.5m in height, not making stocks, unlike  Miscanthus sinensis. Rhizomes extend long sideways and often form big colonies. Leaves are 50-80cm long and 1-3cm wide, and the lower parts have gone in the flowering time. Inflorescences are 50-80cm long, more significant than M. sinensis, and branches emerge more densely. Spikelets measure 5-6mm long, with dense 2-4 times longer silvery white hairs at the bases. Bloom time: September-October.
