Description

Maiden Grass is a reliable ornamental grass with attractive seasonal color. Silver-green foliage grows upright in the center of the plant and arcs gracefully outward at the ends. This selection is ideal for adding texture to your landscape. In fall, this Miscanthus Grass changes to hues of golden and bronze once cold weather rolls around. White flower plumes appear in Late Summer. Once dried, these blooms last for a considerable amount of time and make for great-cut flowers. This plant is hardy from USDA Zones 5-9 and needs Full Sun exposure for best results. This is a particularly water-wise plant once established. However, water 2-times to 3-times per week for the first growing season.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Maiden Miscanthus Grass Spacing Recommendations
