Miscanthus sinensis Gracillimus
Maiden Hair Grass
5-6' tall x 3' wide (division propagated). 'Gracillimus' is a wonderfully showy selection with numerous feathery copper-colored plumes covering the plant by mid-fall. Out-of-flower, the plant has a large, handsome clump of green foliage that makes it standout in the landscape during the summer months. Not for short season climates as 'Gracillimus' will get its flower spikes nipped by September frosts. Irrigate regularly for best flowering. Not for sale in MA (prohibited), CT, DE, MD, NJ, PA, VA, WV & Washington D.C. where it is considered potentially invasive. Miscanthus is well behaved in the Mid-West and Intermountain West where it continues to be an important ornamental grass.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
