Graziella Maiden Grass (Miscanthus sinensis ‘Graziella’)

Graziella Maiden Grass

The fantastic Ornamental Grass Graziella Maiden (Miscanthus sinensis ‘Graziella’) is an earlier blooming, more compact Maiden Grass with slender green foliage on clumps with large, white blooms in late summer. The fine texture of the leaves set it apart from other garden grasses.

Blooming earlier than most Miscanthus, dramatic arching plumes in pinkish burgundy appear in tassel-like inflorescence, high above the foliage. Quickly becoming a creamy white in late summer, gradually turning into silvery-white as the seeds mature. They look great any time of the year as floral design. You’ll love the burnished golden orange-red the stems and blades become in the fall and the dramatic winter interest and motion they provide you all year long!

This warm-season variety of Ornamental Grass is hardy throughout USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9 and is so easy, even a beginner can grow it! Keeping its tallgrass native prairie genetics, Graziella is highly adaptable and versatile!

Planting and Application:

Tips For Care

This Grass is tolerant of a wide range of soils from well-drained sandy soils to heavy clays. Graziella is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Although it is a versatile ornamental grass, the clumps of this plant need lots of room. Prune off the dead grass in early spring before it resumes growing. Be patient with warm-season grasses since they take their time emerging in the spring until temperatures are just right.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade

  • Prune Early Spring
