Miscanthus sinensis is a large-sized perennial in fields and mountains, 1-2m in height, found wherever one goes, with stems that grow in clusters. Leaves measure 50-80cm long and 0.7-2cm wide, linear, and stiff, with awfully sandy margins and thick midribs. And ligules equip hairs on the margins. Inflorescences measure 15-30cm long, and their central figures are short, emerging with many branches in a radial pattern. Bloom time: August-October.
