Miscanthus sinensis has been a star on the world’s garden stage for well over a century. It’s the best-selling, most-recognized ornamental grass species you can grow.
The long history of Miscanthus also means many generations of breeding for desirable traits. Choose from solid-colored blades, longitudinal stripes or cross-blade bars. Better yet, mix and match them in the landscape.
Solid, striped or barred, dwarf to nine feet tall, known for its durability, maiden grass never flags when the heat is on. It can be slow to start in spring, but once the days, nights and soil are warmed up for good, stand back and watch it grow.
