Chinese silver grass

Miscanthus sinensis, the eulalia or Chinese silver grass, is a species of flowering plant in the grass family Poaceae, native to eastern Asia throughout most of China, Japan, Taiwan and Korea.
In some parts of the United States, this grass has spread into natural areas by seeding and is considered invasive in those areas.
