Maiden Grass 'Gracillimus'
Latin Name: Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus'
The most popular selection of this species and deservedly so; plants form a graceful upright mound of fine green foliage that stays attractive from summer through winter, when it changes to a light tan; great as a specimen, border, or mass planting.
Gracillimus Maiden Grass features dainty plumes of pink flowers rising above the foliage from late summer to early fall. The violet seed heads are carried on showy plumes displayed in abundance from mid fall to late winter. Its grassy leaves are green in color. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous tan in the fall. The khaki (brownish-green) stems can be quite attractive.
