When planting your Porcupine Grass choose the best location for this plant to thrive. Be sure to plant this grass in growing zones 5 to 9. This grass can grow in full sun to part shade. Porcupine Miscanthus is adaptable to a variety of soil, but prefers well-drained moist soil.

Water deeply once or twice weekly when newly planted (about 3 months) to help the roots grow properly. After the first year this grass is drought tolerant and only rarely needs water. Water thoroughly in extreme heat, especially in the first summer. Fertilize lightly with a slow release, balanced fertilizer in spring for optimal growth. Prune back this grass to 6 inches in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges.

Porcupine grass is extremely hardy as well as pest and disease resistant. It is also deer, rabbit, pollution, and salt tolerant.

Porcupine Miscanthus works great in mass plantings or by itself. It is perfect for an accent in any type of garden or mixed bed. The unique colors and upright habit of this grass adds vibrancy to areas that are dull. Try this grass in a container for a stunning look everyone will admire! Porcupine Grass can grow up to 8 feet tall and 5 feet wide so give it some space to thrive at maturity. For a grass hedge, plant every 4 feet. Plant at least 6 feet apart on center for defined individual plants.

Each plant we package and ship will carefully be inspected to make sure that you receive the highest quality plant possible, free from insect infestations and disease. All of our plants are living and healthy at time of shipping.

There are many factors that affect a plant. Weather, soil conditions, watering conditions, animal and pest damage, etc. Since we are shipping live plants, timing is critical. Most orders are processed and shipped within 1 - 3 days from checkout.

On occasion an order can take up to 5 days for processing. We plan each shipment to avoid your plants sitting in a truck over the weekend if possible. This means orders may be held until the following monday to ensure the shortest ship time. This delay will guarantee that your plants arrive the highest quality possible. Plants that specify shipping at different seasons will be shipped when they become available. ex. ships fall
