This dwarf Miscanthus is similar to 'Little Zebra' but differs in that its foliage is more strongly variegated with horizontal yellow bands and spots. This turns tan with the onset of winter. Red feathery plumes rise above the foliage in late summer, fading to silver by the end of the season. The flowers and foliage persist through the winter.
