Miscanthus sinensis ‘Graziella’ (Chinese Silver Grass or Maiden Grass)

Miscanthus sinensis ‘Graziella’ is an elegant deciduous grass from China and Japan. It has tall arching foliage, green with a white mid-rib, produced in explosive, vigorous puffs. Golden-pink flowers from late summer will bleach to silver in the winter. This grass can get to 150cm tall, and with a similar breadth.

As part of a designer’s palette, this one is essential for adding flurries of subtle movement and vertical drama. We use it in a variety of ways en-masse to create rolling expanses of soft architecture. It can also be planted as a feature and makes for an elegant stand-alone large specimen. Because of its height and spread, it’s a good choice for veiling parts of your garden rather than completely screening them or for defining areas of intrigue and focus. It’s particularly nice around a parterre or water feature where the swaying leaf blades will arch tremblingly to meet their reflection. Held clear above the plumes of swaying leaves, the abundant wisps of flowers last a long time, too. Emerging in August, rocketing skyward and producing a cloud-like corona of silver-white that hovers over the leaves, which in turn become coppery and mellow in autumn. A great combination as winter begins to creep into your garden, and other plants begin to fade.

Best grown in full sun out of the cold winds, in any moist but well drained soil. Cut back in late winter before the new growth emerges.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
