GRASS - MAIDEN (Miscanthus gracillimus)
GRASS MAIDEN - Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus'
This beautiful grass is adorned with attractive coppery-red color appearing in October. Among the showiest and most beautiful of ornamental grasses, a clump of maiden grass grows to 7 feet by late summer. The top of a clump is wider than the bottom. The top may be 8 feet wide, emerging from a 24 inch diameter base. The stiff, arching leaves extend on all sides. The beauty of the leaves in summer is supplanted by the magnificent tan-to-red seedheads appearing in late August. Winter brings another period of beauty when leaves turn buff brown and the seedheads fade to silver.
