Weeping and Graceful
Maiden Grass, Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus', is a 6-8 feet tall, graceful, clumping ornamental grass. The slender, weeping leaves are silvery-green and turn golden bronze in fall. A silver stripe runs up the middle of the sword-like green leaves.
The flowers are white fan-shaped plumes in fall that extend above the foliage. The hardiness, the fine foliage and the spectacular fall colors have made 'Gracillimus' a favorite and very popular for years!
Plant in spring or early summer when the soil is warm as the roots will grow only in warm soil. Planting too early in the spring may cause the roots to rot. Cut back the previous year’s growth before growth starts to appear in early spring.
'Gracillimus' has an arching shape and looks fabulous in the landscape as a specimen, screen or a nice mass of textured foliage; also looks great near a pond!
For a carefree, year round interest grass, you cannot do better than Maiden grass!
