Maiden Grass, Dwarf –
Also known as Japanese Silver Grass, there are many selections now available, all providing a wonderful fall display of showy plumes, and remaining attractive all winter. This compact variety has large silvery-white flowers over a bushy mound of narrow, dark green leaves. Especially useful for smaller gardens. The foliage dries and turns a light tan shade for the winter. Useful as a specimen, in the border, or for mass planting. Trim to the ground in late winter or early spring. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth appears.
