If you are looking for an eye-catching grass to stand out in your borders, giving year-round interest then Miscanthus ‘Gracilimus' will be an asset. It really comes into its own after a long hot summer, when the flower spikes are superb, with gorgeous, copper-coloured feathery plumes on tall stems above arches of grassy foliage.

A clump-forming hardy perennial, it is low-maintenance and easy to grow. Its pretty seed heads provide winter interest in the garden, or are ideal for adding something a bit different to flower arrangements. Height: 130cm (51"). Spread: 120cm (47").

Grow Miscanthus grass in fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun. Maiden Grass resents soils that sit wet in winter. Prior to planting, improve drainage on particularly heavy soils by incorporating plenty of well rotted compost and grit.
Feed and water Miscanthus plants regularly until fully established. Cut back dead foliage and stems to ground level in early spring before new growth appears. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Miscanthus grass every third year to maintain their vigour.
