Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio' produces fine-textured, narrow leaves and grows in a stylish, compact, rounded shape. At four feet, five with bloom, this dwarf Miscanthus is sought-after for small patios and gardens. Dwarf Maiden Grass is also prized for use in borders and massed plantings, or as a foreground for larger Maiden Grass cultivars. It puts on a lovely display in August when fan-shaped, rose-coloured flowers rise above the foliage. Leaves turn a beautiful burgundy shade in fall. Dwarf Maiden Grass can be left standing for winter interest; cut back in spring before new growth will start. Maximum height is around 150cm (4.5 feet).
