Hi,

Are the first 2 images miscanthus? And are they the same type? The third picture I have no idea what it is.

Thanks in advance

Can you take a picture of the seed head on the last picture. I don't know if you'll can grow crape myrtle, it looks a bit like it, they usually like hot summers to produce a bloom.

Thanks for the response. I have no idea what a seed head is, though! Oh well.

Hi, Paul,
I believe these are Pennisetum flower spikes, not Miscanthus. Miscanthus tend to be more open at the top of the spike. I agree with Elaine, looks like crepe myrtle (Lagerstroemia).

Hi Kathy,

Thanks so much for the correction - having just googled imaged it I believe you´re right.

Thanks to both of you!

Paul
