Miscanthus sinensis Gracillimus

Eulalia Grass Gracillimus (Maiden Grass)

The name means ‘most graceful’, and Miscanthus sinensis Gracillimus certainly is, remaining narrow at the bottom and arching outwards to its full width. It is a medium-sized, deciduous, warm-season grass with a clump-forming habit. The very slender leaves are green with white midribs, giving a light, airy appearance. In August and September, arching plumes of silky, creamy-beige flowers appear above the leaves, and persist into winter; flowering sometimes does not occur in a poor summer. Eulalia grass Gracillimus is good back-lit by low autumn sun. Cut back to the base before growth starts in late winter.
