1 Gal. Maiden Grass - Very Tall Ornamental Grass, Perfect for Borders and Fence Plantings
This gorgeous, tall and wide grass is sure to be an instant enhancement to the dimensional quality of your garden. This large grass cultivar makes for an excellent low-maintenance and soft substitute to more commonplace hedges and shrubs. With a dramatic and fine texture, Maiden Grass adds privacy and blends beautifully with the subtle, warm tones of garden stones and wooden country-styled fences. The silvery-green blades gracefully arch and sway with the wind, while plushy violet flower plumes rise above the foliage in late summer. The dense, fountain shaped clumps add instant, versatile contrast. Maiden Grass, botanical name Miscanthus sinensis Gracillimus, is suited to USDA zones 4-9, with full sun. It soon becomes quite large, reaching a height of 6 ft. to 8 ft. and a spread of 3 ft. to 5 ft. As the silver-green foliage turns gold in autumn, its purple blossoms gradually turn silver as well. Maiden Grass is a graceful focal point or privacy screen, whether you have a country or city garden feel. Extremely easy to care for, this addition even perfectly enhances a freshly sheared lawn.
