Miscanthus sinsensis 'Little Miss'

Maiden Grass

Small and colorful, Miscanthus sinensis 'Little Miss' will brighten up any landscape. It features a neat, compact habit with glossy, arching foliage less than 3 feet tall. The blades emerge green and turn carmine to purple in late spring through summer. Foliage at the center of the clump stays green, giving it an appealing, two-toned look. Reddish blooms appear in midsummer, rising above the foliage and turning buff-colored as they age. Fall color is outstanding!
