Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Miscanthus grass variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Adagio is a dwarf Miscanthus cultivar and one of the shortest available on the market today, typically growing to only 3-4 feet tall with an equal width in a gracefully weeping mound. It features extremely narrow silver-gray leaf blade that turn to shades of yellow, orange and red in fall. Attractive, tassel-like reddish inflorescence's rise above the foliage in late summer gradually opening to fluffy, creamy white plumes by fall providing interest in the landscape well into winter. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 3-4 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide, Adagio Dwarf Maiden Grass is an ideal selection for a specimen or accent plant in smaller gardens spaces, home foundation plantings, and in large containers. In larger landscape beds it is useful in small to large groupings or as an attractive low hedge. It combines nicely with dark- or bright-leaved evergreen shrubs, such as Abelia, Distylium, Holly, Junipers, Loropetalum and other sun-loving evergreens.

Spacing:  3-4' apart for a solid hedge;   10' or more apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Miscanthus grasses are easy to grow in a wide range of soils, from sandy to well-drained clay and full to mostly sun (6 hours or more direct sunlight per day). They prefer a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility while establishing themselves, however will tolerate periods of dry soil when established. Constantly soggy or wet soils can be problematic, so make sure the planting site is a well-drained one. Maintenance is minimal requiring only an annual pruning before new growth begins to emerge in late winter or very early spring. At this time simply cut plants back to just above the ground.
