Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus'
Common name: Maiden grass 'Gracillimus'
One of the oldest and best known cultivars of Miscanthus.
It has delicate narrow leaves that grow in a wide, arching clump.
Blooms late in the season with silken tassles that begin a rich, coppery red then mature to silvery white.
Winter foliage is an attractive warm tan that adds wonderful color and texture to the landscape.
