Common Name: Maiden Grass, Ornamental Grass
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.
Miscanthus is versatile from a design standpoint; it can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond’s edge. Plant this grass where its wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed.
