My Fair Maiden™ Maiden Grass
Miscanthus sinensis 'NCMS1' PP #26,387
|Description||A lovely vase shape composed of a large cluster of cascading green leaves. As summer draws to a close, the showy plumes take center stage, as they glisten and shine in the sunlight high above the foliage. Nearly sterile with a notably low seed set. Use for textural contrast in perennial and shrub beds, or a dramatic background to the landscape.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall, 4 to 5 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||This large ornamental grass is an outstanding accent for beds and borders and large rock gardens. Use as a vertical among low-growing plants or have a pair flank a favorite sculpture or classical stone column. Perfect near water gardens as wildlife cover and in conjunction with tiered or wall fountains to disguise mechanical pumps, filters, pipes and wires.|
|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.|
