Adagio Dwarf Maiden Grass
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 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

One of the shorter varieties available on the market today, Adagio is a dwarf Miscanthus cultivar that grows to only 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide in a gracefully weeping mound. It features extremely narrow silver-gray leaf blades that turn to shades of yellow, orange and red in fall. Attractive, tassel-like reddish inflorescences rise above the foliage in late summer gradually opening to fluffy, creamy white plumes by fall that provide winter inter in the garden. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a graceful weeping mound 3 to 4 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, Adagio Dwarf Maiden Grass is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or in straight or staggered rows as a border or hedge in sunny landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Excellent in mass plantings on slopes and embankments for erosion control. Combines nicely with dark- or bright-leaved evergreen shrubs, such as Abelia, Distylium, Holly, Junipers, Loropetalum and other sun-loving evergreens. A fine addition to ornamental grass gardens and looks especially nice around bolders and bodies of water.

Spacing:  3 to 4 feet apart for a solid hedge; 10 feet 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. Save the cut flower stems for dried flower arrangements!
