We just moved to MN from the Chicago area. I used to grow Giant Miscanthus there and I see you have a fantastic garden with these. I was hoping to grow them here but I haven't been able to locate a nursery where I can buy them. Do you know of any that are carrying them?

While we can't make recommendations to retail operations you can do some on-line research with the Arboretum's search engine. They do have lists of places where plants can be obtained.
You did not say which variety of Miscanthus you are interested in, but most of our larger retail landscape garden suppliers will carry at least a few of them. If you haven't yet, you should take a field trip out to the University's Landscape Arboretum. We have a large demonstration garden devoted to many kinds of grasses that will do well in Minnesota. Pack a lunch and plan on spending a lovely day there. It's one of my favorite places!
I hope this is helpful Please contact AaE again if you have further questions.
