Maiden grass. One of the oldest Miscanthus cultivars, this one posseses narrow, finely textured leaves colored silver by a band of silver-cream variegation along the midrib. Plants rise early from winter dormancy to 5’ tall and form graceful, rounded mounds. The showy flowers open copper-rust in late summer or early fall, then quickly fade to silver and persist through winter. The handsome fall foliage is decorated with golden-orange tones. A strong selection. Deer resistant.
Common name synonym: Eulalia grass, Japanese silver grass.
