About This Product

Our national attention is turning to climate change. All the data say it's crunch time and that plants are essential for building communities that can withstand these changes. A 2016 report from the EPA explored ways green infrastructure can improve community resiliency. Ornamental grasses and sedges can be part of the answer in all the case studies cited in the EPA report. Grasses and sedges anchor the plantings that help clean our water, reduce flooding and lessen the effects of rising temperatures. Let's work towards a better environment. Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio' produces fine-textured, narrow leaves and grows in a stylish, compact, rounded shape. At 4 ft., 5 with bloom, this dwarf Miscanthus is sought-after for small patios and gardens. Dwarf Maiden Grass is also prized for use in borders and massed plantings, or as a foreground for larger Maiden Grass cultivars. It puts on a lovely display in late summer when fan-shaped, rose-colored flowers rise above the foliage. Leaves turn a beautiful burgundy shade in fall. Dwarf Maiden Grass can be left standing for winter interest; cut back in spring before new growth appears. The cultivar name 'Adagio' comes from the Italian ad agio, meaning "at ease, a term used in music and ballet to signify slow movements. Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio' certainly complies as it dances with the slightest wind. This is a Kurt Bluemle introduction.

      Very simple!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This dormant plant arrived in great packaging with no mess. It had an information card that was easy to follow and had all the information one would need to properly handle this plant. All I had to do was add some soil to a pot, stick the plant in, and add a little more soil. Easy peasy! I was amazed at how fast it sprouted and turned green, and grass started to grow right away! I can’t wait for it to get bigger so I can move it into something bigger and let it spread. The grass is long and gorgeous so far.

          Died :(
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sadly, I am not much of a green thumb and this poor little plant did not make it for me. I am not sure if I overwatered it or underwatered it. I feel terrible! I was really looking forward to seeing it grow as I think it would have done well in the hot dry Texas weather we have. It was shipped very well and in good shape when it arrived!

            Great condition
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The plant arrived in a small, convenient disposable pot in healthy condition. It was dormant but started growing very quickly with a little water and sunlight. I transplanted it to my garden over the weekend and it seems to be thriving. If you are looking for a convenient and easy-to-grow decorative grass, I highly recommend this!

                Beautiful
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm so pleased with my new dwarf fountain ornamental grass! It came well packaged in a dormant state with very easy to read and follow instructions. After planting, it quickly took to the soil and has taken off. It is a beautiful plant and it adds interest and beauty to my garden. Highly recommended!
