Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gracillimus’


Maiden Grass

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.270.300


There are many selections of Miscanthus now available, but this is by far the most popular of all. Plants form a graceful, upright mound of narrow green foliage that stays attractive from summer right through the winter. Coppery-pink plumes appear in late fall, although sometimes not at all in cool summer regions. The foliage dries and turns a light tan shade for the winter. Useful as a specimen, in the border, or for mass planting. Trim to the ground in late winter or early spring. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth appears.
