Maiden silvergrass   (Miscanthus sinensis) 'Gracillimus'

'Gracillimus' is noted for its narrow green leaves with a silver midrib which form a substantial, rounded, arching clump of foliage that turns yellowish after frost, but quickly fades to straw-beige by winter. Tiny reddish-copper flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in late September, gradually turning into silvery white plumes as the seeds mature. Blooms later than most Miscanthus cultivars. Flower plumes persist well into winter providing good winter interest. 'Gracillimus' is an old and very popular cultivar.
