Malepartus Maiden Grass
Miscanthus sinensis 'Malepartus'
|Description||Unlike most that bloom in fall, 'Malepartus' blooms in midsummer, allowing cool climate gardens to be graced with the full beauty of this ornamental grass. Plumes are held high above broad foliage with a superb erect habit; they open pink, turn coppery red in fall, then turn silvery white in winter. Bronze-red fall foliage adds striking contrast.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Summer, persisting through fall.|
|Mature Size||Foliage reaches 5 ft. tall and wide; plumes reach 7 ft. tall.|
|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.|
