Miscanthus (Maiden Grass)

Miscanthus sinensis

This dense-growing grass prefers full sun and well-draining soils. It's super low-maintenance: it's resistant to pests, diseases, deer, and rabbits! It's also quite drought and salt-tolerant, making it perfect for shore gardens!

  • Water Needs: Keep evenly moist in well-drained soil until established
  • Bloom Season: N/A grown for foliage
  • Height: 1 - 2 feet
  • Growth Habit: Upright
