Poaceae. Asia. 4 m H x W 1 m. Z4. Perennial. Natural hybrid between Miscanthus sinensis (diploid) and Miscanthus sacchariflorus (tetraploid), Miscanthus x giganteus is a sterile triploid. Unlike bamboo, Elephant Grass is not invasive. Since the plant traps atmospheric carbon very efficiently (C4 photosynthesis), it is used as a source of biomass and cultivated on an industrial scale to produce biofuel. The rhizomes are planted in March and April only, and for better recovery, the plant should be well watered the first year. Established plants do not need any care, starting on their second year. A beautiful ornamental grass, used to quickly produce hedges of 3 to 4 m in height that will become dense and impenetrable after a few years. The juice of the young shoot has medicinal properties: anticoagulants, diuretics, and antipyretic. In March, cut the dead stems 20cm above the ground and use them as mulch in your garden.

Plant the rhizomes in march-april 20-30 cm apart and 5-10 cm deep, horizontaly with their roots downward, in a well prepared ground at full sun exposure. Young shoots will emerge by the end of april-beginning of may. Water regularly if the soil gets dry the first few months. 3 rhizomes available only in February and March only
