Grass Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus'
‘Gracillimus’ is an industry standard and has been around for a long time. It is durable with slender wiry blades, upright habit, and nice flower plumes. Reddish bloom appears between October and November.
Miscanthus (Maiden Grass) is a tall, graceful grass with superior winter-long interest, flower plumes, and foliage that stay intact all winter.
Though late to emerge in spring, grasses create a striking vertical accent in the summer garden; their flowers add grace to the fall garden, and in winter, they add more interest than almost any other plant. There are many to choose from in our climate.
