Versatile Ornamental Grass

Little Zebra Maiden Grass, Miscanthus sinensis 'Little Zebra', is an ornamental grass with versatile features. Plant one of these for an accent in your perennial bed, several along a pond or patio, or en masse on a hilly slope. One of the sterling features of this “little” grass is its versatility!

Your Little Zebra Maiden Grass is an exceptional example of what an ornamental grass should be. It’s not only hardy and easy to care for, but will present a head-turning display in your yard. Little Zebra forms a dense clump creating a neat appearance. The vibrant green foliage reaches up and out, each long, thin leaf sporting horizontal lines of a yellow hue. The bi-color effect in your landscape is sure to be exquisite.

As if the decorative foliage weren't enough, 6-inch purple plumes shoot up above the colorful leaves in late summer, reaching a total height of 2-feet above the foliage! As the seeds mature, the plumes transition to a creamy shade and the foliage fades, remaining a lovely point of interest for your winter landscape.

Little Zebra Maiden Grass is a dwarf variety that will grow up to 4 feet tall, with a flowering plum reaching 2 feet above that. Its spread is about 3-feet wide. It’s a relatively hardy grass, drought resistant (when established), and adaptive to a variety of conditions.

With so many ornamental grasses on the market, it can be difficult to choose the best for your landscape. Little Zebra Maiden Grass will give you the opportunity to have a bi-color grass that is not only compact and easy to care for, but also offers vibrant color for your yard spring through fall, and even some delicate color and texture in the winter months.
