My Fair Maiden™ Maiden Grass

Miscanthus sinensis 'NCMS1' PP #26,387

SKU
41620
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.
