About This Product

This gorgeous, tall and wide grass is sure to be an instant enhancement to the dimensional quality of your garden. This large grass cultivar makes for an excellent low-maintenance and soft substitute to more commonplace hedges and shrubs. With a dramatic and fine texture, Maiden Grass adds privacy and blends beautifully with the subtle, warm tones of garden stones and wooden country-styled fences. The silvery-green blades gracefully arch and sway with the wind, while plushy violet flower plumes rise above the foliage in late summer. The dense, fountain shaped clumps add instant, versatile contrast. Maiden Grass, botanical name Miscanthus sinensis Gracillimus, is suited to USDA zones 4-9, with full sun. It soon becomes quite large, reaching a height of 6 ft. to 8 ft. and a spread of 3 ft. to 5 ft. As the silver-green foliage turns gold in autumn, its purple blossoms gradually turn silver as well. Maiden Grass is a graceful focal point or privacy screen, whether you have a country or city garden feel. Extremely easy to care for, this addition even perfectly enhances a freshly sheared lawn.

          Died after 1 season
          Bought several last year and they bloomed big and beautiful during the season, but all have died and not returned second year. Would not buy again, try another variety. Other fountain grasses ordered at same time and planted in same conditions bloomed again second year.

              The plants are growing like crazy. Love the packaging and they came in healthy. After 3 weeks in the ground, they have more than doubled in size with the green shoots coming out. I picked them cause they grow well in my zone the North East states.

              Arrived Green, Looking even better after 3 weeks
              The grasses look nice so far, a fairly thin amount of grass, but it arrived in good shape despite the hot weather. After doing a bit of research on Maiden Hair I decided not to plant it where I had originally planned (in an open spot in the forest), but up on my deck instead in a planter, where it will stay - creating a nice privacy screen on one side with some growth and division needed.

                A bit too pricey!!
                I just received my plants today (04-07-20) they were ordered on 04-27-20. It was delivered in great condition. I gave 4 stars because it was a bit too pricey!! I'm just hoping it grows well in zone 10.

                  received the plant in dormant condition, so I thought. But as of today it is still brown with no obvious new growth showing. I have been giving it the benefit of the doubt. But am afraid it was shipped already“dead”

                  Arrived dead
                  Ordered 3 and 1 was dead. Way over priced for the size. They did replace without question. Very small I was not impressed.

                    Not Great So Far
                    Ordered 4, with the only option being home delivery. Arrived looking like dead grass. Figured they were dormant. All 4 been in the ground over a week and 1 is sprouting. The other 3 still look dead. Will report back in a couple of weeks. Review will change to a 5 or a 1 at that time.
