Plant of the Week 03/29/19

Maiden Grass Miscanthus sinesis ‘Gracillimus’ - Zone 4-9

Stalks of feathery reddish-brown seed heads stand tall above the green grass blades. After the first frost, the green grass blades and stalks begin turning a golden-brown that lasts to late winter.

Plant in full sun and water regularly. A moderate grower that can read 8’ tall and 5’ wide. Adaptable to most well-drained soils. Cut back in late winter to early spring before new growth appears.

Be careful the blades of Maiden grass can cause paper cuts when pruning back.
