Invasive Plant Factsheet: Chinese Silver Grass (Miscanthus sinensis)

This densely-bunched grass was introduced to the United States from Asia for ornamental purposes in the late 1800s. Today some 50 forms are sold in the nursery trade, and it is often used in both commercial and residential landscapes. Unfortunately, it escapes from these plantings and has become invasive in national parks in Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. It is listed as an invasive species in Alexandria and Arlington, Virginia.
