Miscanthus 'Gold Bar' is a fun, dramatic grass that will bring long-lasting pizazz to your garden.

Miscanthus grasses are pretty unmistakable with their lush, almost jungly thickets of leaves that rustle and sway in the breeze. There are lots of varieties, but 'Gold Bar' is a true stand out: it has fantastically-striped leaves, the normal green being intersected by, as the name suggests, gold bars, looking for all the world as if it were being lit by the low sun slanting through a Venetian blind. It's a pretty unusual form of variegation that demands attention and looks especially good in tropical or exotic-themed plantings. Try teaming it with hardy bananas, fatsias and other boldly textured plants for a real 'wow factor' - or use it in an herbaceous border where it will combine beautifully with late-flowering plants like salvias and rudbeckias.

Add a dash of something different to your garden with this prettily patterned grass.

Plant Care & Advice

A doddle to grow, as long as you follow a couple of simple rules. Give it a sunny spot and water really well until established. Soak the rootball in a bucket of water for 10 minutes to make sure it's thoroughly moist, then plant in well-prepared ground (add some compost and general-purpose fertiliser) and water in well.

Once plants are established they will tolerate drought but they look best when they get regular moisture. Feed annually with a general purpose, slow release fertiliser such as Growmore or Bonemeal to encourage lots of lush foliage.

Plants are deciduous - they'll turn a tawny brown colour with the first hard frosts of autumn. However, they stand up relatively well to winter weather, so many gardeners choose to leave them un-cut, enjoying their structure and movement in the winter garden until late February, at which point they can be simply cut back to ground level with shears or a hedge trimmer. Simple!
