Of all the ornamental grasses, the Cosmopolitan Maiden Grass is one of the most beautiful and desirable. The inch-wide leaves arch up and over, creating a cascade of white and cream on a column of stems that grow over 5 feet tall, making a broad clump 4 to 5 feet wide. In late summer flower stems with silver-pink tassels rise to 8 feet, making a wonderful visual accent in your garden. This grass is not invasive, and it billows and ripples in the breezes, creating wonderful rustling sounds. Grow it as specimen in a bed or lawn, behind flowers or shrubs, or in a row as a summer screen.

  • Tall clump of stems carries long arching leaves
  • Leaves are edged in creamy-white, with a pale-green center vein
  • Stems carrying fluffy silver-pink flowers rise above the leaves in late summer
  • Clump-forming and never invasive
  • Resistant to salt and never touched by deer

Grow the Cosmopolitan Maiden Grass in full sun, or a little partial shade, in any well-drained soil. It prefers moist and rich soils, but it is drought-tolerant once established. Hardy to zone 5, and resistant to salt spray. Pest, disease and deer-proof, and very easy to grow. Cut down to 6 inches in late fall or late winter.
