With Miscanthus sinensis “Malepartus” you will get densely bushy grasses already in the first year!
Planted in plant trough , the plant grows less likely (0.75 – 1.25m), but not less attractive, the ornamental grass presents itself in a similar way like the “Large Fontaine” showing thick flower tufts starting from late summer. This slow-growing Chinese reed species is rather uncomplicated like our other species, and is due to its powerful planting bales recommended for plantings that produce very dense and bushy grass from the 1st summer.
Our Jumbograss sticks of the Miscanthus sinsensis Malepartus species and for low trough plantations can be obtained in the following sizes*:
Mini: 8-12 cm diameter, 0.3 – 0.4 meters in the 1st summer, e.g. 8 pcs for trough with 100 cm
Midi: 10 – 20 cm diameter, 0.4 – 0.5 meters in the 1st summer, e.g. 6 pcs for trough with 100 cm
Maxi: 20 – 35 cm diameter, 0.5 – 0.75 meters in the 1st summer, e.g. 5 pcs for trough with 100 cm
* All information approx.
Easy to order: Just select the trough size and enter the desired bale size (mini to maxi) and the number of plant containers, ready! Strong>
The Chinese reed, “Malepartus” is, as already described above, rather easy to maintain . After an incubation period of one to two years and depending on the size of the bale and to nutrient and water availability it reaches its final height with flowers of about 0.75 – 1.25 meters (sometimes up to 1.5 m) in trough or potted plantations . This characteristic makes it possible to use this grass on a balcony or a terrace, providing a nice grass plantation , also in combination with other grasses.
