..there's nothing wrong with that's a gorgeous Miscanthus...probably the variety sinensis 'Zebrinus' can see the yellow banding on the leaves, and with that band looks like Zebrinus to the bands are closer together in this variety...although there are a few others of this type.... also the leaves turn a pale yellow towards yours are doing there...

...plant in the's wonderful...
