Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus' - Maiden Grass
'Gracillimus', known as maiden grass, is noted for its narrow green leaves with a silver midrib which form a substantial, rounded, arching clump of foliage typically growing 4-6' tall (to 8' when in flower). Tiny reddish-copper flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in late September, gradually turning into silvery white plumes as the seeds mature. This versatile ornamental grass can be used as an accent, specimen or used in a small grouping. Dried flowers are long lasting.
