I just found another leftover. This is a lovely grass called Miscanthus 'Little Zebra'.
As you can plainly see she is not so little. The spot I chose is very inappropriate.
I will transplant it this spring but it makes me wonder how big the larger 'zebra' is.

This is a great idea. It will be good when hi-speed internet is available to all and we don't need to be concerned with how many pictures we post. Hope that's not too far off.

Not sure if I showed this one, it makes a nice filler, especially when it gets to a good sze.

This is an artemis isn't it joan? Silvermound. I loved this one but when it gets too big it tends to flop open. I also had some kind of moth make coccoons in it. They looked like big fat brown cigars..... :shock:

Hi Neng
I don't know how many there are but the one you mentioned, according to my
records, grows to 5 -9 feet tall. That is why I got 'Little Zebra'. It was said to
grow to 3 feet. I am 5ft 6 in and the tallest fronds on mine are taller than me.
So, I hope the spot you have chosen is more appropriate than mine was.

This may be of interest to you Lyn.

Culture
full sun to partial sun
placement in moist, well-drained, relatively infertile soils in full sun prevents excessive vertical vegetative growth, which will usually prevent the center of the foliage mound from unattractively opening up and separating by mid-Summer
if placed in fertile soils, the foliage may grow from 1' to 1.5' tall; in this case, clump splittiing can be prevented or delayed by shearing the foliage back halfway in July, before flowering begins
tolerant of poor soils, dry soils, heat, and drought
propagated by crown division or by rooted stem cuttings
Daisy Family, with stem rot or foliage rust under humid conditions being the two primary disease problems, and with no significant pest problems
moderately available in containers
