Adagio Maiden Grass is a graceful, swaying grass that is only 4 feet tall in leaf, and 5 feet tall when topped with its elegant golden seed-heads. The foliage is very narrow, and profuse, giving a fountain-like appearance to this plant. In fall the silver-green foliage turns attractive shades of yellow, orange and red, and this grass remains attractive all through winter. It is clump-forming, so it will not invade surrounding areas, and fits perfectly among flowering plants and shrubs. Use it to soften your planting arrangements, bringing beauty and flow as it bends gently in the breeze. This grass may look elegant and soft, but it is tough and hardy, growing in very windy locations, and staying upright even in snow. Plant it as a specimen in a lawn, among shrubs and flowers, as a single plant or in groups or drifts. It is tall enough to make a summer screen to hide something unattractive, and it even grows well in larger planters and containers, looking beautiful month after month.

  • Spectacular grass with graceful, narrow leaves
  • Beautiful dwarf form for smaller places, just 4-5 ft tall
  • Elegant, swaying golden seed-heads
  • Easily grown in any garden
  • Clump-forming and not invasive

Plant Adagio Maiden Grass in a sunny spot, although it will tolerate a small amount of shade. It thrives in almost any soil, and does best in moist, well-drained soil of all kinds. Once established plants are moderately drought tolerant. Cut stems back to a few inches tall in spring – that is the only care needed. In areas with heavy snow, cut back in early winter. This grass waits until the soil is warm before beginning to sprout. It has no significant pests or diseases. An annual organic mulch will conserve moisture and provide nutrients – no other care is needed. This fast-growing grass is a fantastic addition to any garden, no matter what style it is.
