Dwarf Maiden Grass
Miscanthus sinensis 'Yakushima'
|Description||This versatile, compact form of maiden grass makes a great accent in smaller gardens, and is gorgeous massed in larger scale landscapes. Flowers at an early age. Showy clumps are topped by silvery white blooms in summer, which persist as the foliage turns golden bronze in autumn. Easy care and waterwise.|
|Light||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Late summer into fall|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 3 to 4 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||Even though this is labeled a dwarf, this is still a big grass that needs space to look its best. Adds unique texture and color contrast to mid-sized perennial and shrub borders. Excellent for around water gardens or along dry streambeds. Even works well in semi-shaded environments, where it grows long and luxurious. Grow in drought-resistant gardens for golden fall effects. Perfect for wild gardens as a woodland bright spot or as a taller accent in meadows.|
|Companion Plants||Ninebark (Physocarpus); Juniper (Juniperus); Potentilla (Potentilla); Aster (Aster); Cranesbill (Geranium); Catmint (Nepeta)|
|Care||Easily grown in average, evenly moist, well-drained, loamy soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, tolerates moderate dry spells. Cut foliage clumps back to 3 inches above the ground and apply fertilizer in late winter to early spring.|
