Additional Notes about Roland Maiden Grass:

Warning: Although individual Miscanthus cultivars are reputedly sterile, two cultivars can sometimes cross-pollinate, and produce viable seed, becoming invasive in several states, and in Southern Ontario. (pers obs.)

Recommendation: plant only one cultivar, and if there are other Miscanthus in the neighbourhood, consider a native or nativar substitute.

Warm Season Grasses: These grasses are much slower starting in the spring. They do not push new growth until temperatures warm in early to midsummer. They flower later in the summer or fall with most blooms remaining into the winter. Most warm season grasses tolerate heat, humidity and drought; some even thrive in these conditions.
