A very cute little Miscanthus, one of my favorites. Late to emerge in spring. Blooms August - October in my garden.

This is a dwarf maiden grass, reaching a height of only 15". It is thin-bladed with silver-green foliage. In autumn, the grass turns a lovely burgundy/bronze. Drought tolerant once established. Great container plant.
