The Yaku Jima Maiden Grass, Miscanthus sinensis ‘Yaku Jima’, is compact grass with fine textured foliage. Soft green all summer, it turns reddish brown in the fall and remains attractive well into winter. The reddish flowers are showy but not quite as fluffy as most.
Yaku Jima Maiden Grass is a slightly bigger plant than ‘Adagio’, but the main difference is that its leaves are even narrower, almost needle fine!
Yaku Jima Maiden Grass is very hardy and low growing, it tolerates a wide range of soil types; moderately drought tolerant; holds up to wind and snow.
Use as a specimen, in a container, as a border, along walkways, or by the water’s edge. Yaku Jima Grass prefers full sun and moist, well drained soil; a great grass for small gardens.
