Miscanthus Neil Lucas ('Nica 20'®)
A fascinating play of colors with unique contrasts in a changing palette.
Already early in season, when the first leaves emerge, the broad bright white midrib in the glossy green leaves immediately attracts attention. Also early appear the first striking reddish hues in the beautiful bright green of the leaves.
The start of a color feast that takes place in a change of palettes for a long season.
In the course of autumn this very colorful Chinese silver grass shows more and more beautiful, and certainly with backlight and low sun, more fiery flaming red hues.
And then miscanthus Neil Lucas still afterglows ; a bit into winter. After that the plant forms a very beautiful silhouette that remains intact throughout the winter.
The hardy ornamental grass Neil Lucas is medium in size and therefore also suitable for an average garden. Also a beautiful plant for in the pot on the balcony or terrace.
The plant thrives in a variety of conditions, but an average situation with at least some sun is best.
The height in the pot is 70-90 cm. In the open ground somewhat higher 1.00 - 1.40 m.
