Maiden Grass, Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus', forms large clumps of gracefully arching foliage. Its dense structure provides sufficient cover when used as a peaceful privacy screen or border. This is a late blooming cultivar compared to most grasses. Copper tassels form in fall and help to set a beautiful autumn scene in the landscape. Flower heads fade to silvery white and foliage turns gold after the first frost. Maiden Grass 'Gracillimus' should be left standing throughout winter for interest and to protect the crowns. Cut back in late winter just before new growth emerges.

Dramatic, graceful shrubs for a variety of locations

While most often used as edging, maiden grass is an ornamental shrub that works in a range of areas. With its clumping growth pattern and up to 6-foot height, their slender blades and prominent plumes are popular among homeowners and landscapers alike. They grow best in full sun, but they’re adaptable to many soil types – from gardening soil to clay. Not only does maiden grass add a rich green color during the spring and summer months, but it will fade to a golden shade during fall. With blades that move in the slightest breeze, maiden grass is adds instant interest and curb appeal.

Great for beginning gardeners

Maiden grass is easy to maintain and requires very little care. This makes it not only highly suitable for those who have little experience in growing plants, but also for those who are often away from home but who still want a beautiful landscaping design. It also thrives in containers, adding visual interest to patios, porches and terraces.
