Miscanthus s. 'Gracillimus'
[Maiden Grass]
Size (ships bareroot) - Gallon $6.95
Height Light
6 - 8 ft. Sun Late Summer 5 - 9

One of the oldest and well-known cultivars of Miscanthus. Beautiful, rounded mounds of fine, silver-veined green leaves arch gracefully as they sway in the wind. In early fall, fan-like plumes emerge with a reddish tint and then age to a soft silvery-white. They are complimented nicely by the golden-yellow fall color of the leaves.

Care: Miscanthus is easy to grow and is a good choice for beginners. It will grow in most any soil, from loose sand to heavy clay, and does not require good drainage. Grow this grass in full sun except in warmer regions where some afternoon shade is best. Fertilization is not necessary. Divide Miscanthus in spring or early summer to give it time to establish its roots before winter arrives. Only in the mildest of climates should it be divided in the fall.
