Lush, Eye-Catching Texture

Why Miscanthus Gracillimus?

A popular variety of ornamental grass also known as Chinese Silver Grass or Maiden Hair Grass, the Miscanthus Gracillimus makes a beautiful accent for your yard and landscaping.

Alongside long, graceful blades of grass, the Miscanthus Gracillimus emerges with vibrant, purple-toned flower plumes in summer, adding color and dimension. The feathery plumes change to a light silver-white as they mature, for eye-catching interest through fall and winter.

This Maiden Grass grows in a dense, fountain-like cluster. They can reach anywhere from 5-6 feet tall, and extend 3-4 feet wide. Note that in the US, it is not recommended to grow more than one in close proximity, and it is considered invasive in some states.

Most often utilized as an accent plant, you can add the Miscanthus Gracillimus into a shrubbery screen, at the ends of hedges, and along borders, or as a garden accent. This strong grass is pest and disease free, as well as resistant to deer and rabbits.

Variety is the spice of life, and the Miscanthus Gracillimus' unique growth adds variety to your landscape from season to season. Its different moods and shapes will hold interest all year.

    Maiden Grass

    Appreciated how nicely boxed it was upon arrival. I love the speedy delivery time! I do have it planted and they look very hardy! I look forward to watching them grow and hopefully compliment the rest of that area.
