Miscanthus - Maiden Grasses

Adding drama and powerful structure to the landscape, Miscanthus sinensis (Japanese Silver Grass) are fabulous ornamental grasses that should have a spot in any garden. Very gifted, these perennial grasses are easy to grow, wonderful in winter, add elegance and movement to the landscape, are generally pest and disease free and require little maintenance. Traditionally used in Japan in decorative art and gardens, Miscanthus made a royal entrance into the occidental gardens about a century ago, thanks to their spectacular feathery plumes towering above their graceful arching foliage and their year-long interest in the garden.
