Textured Ornamental Grass with Beautiful Fall Plumes

This long-revered grass, the Miscanthus Gracillimus shrub, has remained a popular staple as an ornamental piece in landscapes due to its graceful green leaves.

This classically shaped ornamental grass features fine narrow foliage with white midribs and a medium-sized slender form in early spring. In the fall, it shows a bronze autumn color and will withstand harsh winters quite well. Miscanthus sinensis gracillimus grass maintains winter interest with its silvery white foliate during the cold months if left standing.

Sometimes known as Eulalia grass or Japanese silver grass, this clump forming grass with green blades will spread throughout your garden wherever you plant it.

This dwarf maiden grass cultivars tassel-like blossoms appear in fall and feature a brownish color. Perfect for cut foliage in wedding bouquets or wreaths. The narrow foliage, gracefully rounded form, and spectacular fall colors make the Gracillimus miscanthus grass a favorite amongst landscapers and cottage gardens.


This plant does well in full sun to part shade and is easily grown in average medium, well-drained soil. Undoubtedly, this maiden grass is tolerant of a wide range of soils even heavy clay or drained sandy soils.

The Gracillimus is fairly adaptable but will not tolerate excessive winter moisture well. However, it is tolerant of summer heat and humidity and it is also drought tolerant and deer resistant at maturity.

If planted in shade, you may see growth vigorous with decreased flowering and a tendency to have long bloom periods of fine textured grass.

Grow this hardy warm season grass across the United States in USDA growing zones 5-9. The dwarf miscanthus grows up to 4-7 feet tall and 3-6 feet wide. It is commonly seen growing in coastal areas because of its salt tolerance.
