Miscanthus Adagio for Sale Online
Miscanthus Adagio is a dwarf plant with graceful, silvery-green foliage that becomes a mix of orange, gold, and burgundy in fall. Spectacular when planted in mass plantings or mixed into perennial borders as specimens.
Miscanthus Adagio is a dwarf grass cultivar that is one of the shortest of the many Miscanthus cultivars available in commerce today, typically growing 3 to 4 feet tall (5 feet in bloom.) It is an upright, warm season, clump-forming ornamental grass with extremely narrow, silver-gray blades that turn yellow in fall. Tiny pink-tinged flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in late summer, gradually turning into creamy white plumes by fall as the seeds mature. Foliage and flower plumes persist well into winter, providing good winter interest. It is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerant of a wide range of soils from well-drained sandy soils to heavy clays.
Adagio Maiden Grass prefers moist soils and does best in full sun. It will be less vigorous with decreased flowering and a tendency to flop in too much shade. Tolerant of summer heat and humidity. Clumps slowly expand in circumference by short rhizomes but retain a tight clump shape. Foliage should be left standing throughout the winter for visual interest and to provide protection for the crowns. Cut foliage to the ground in late winter, just before new shoots appear. Adagio is a versatile ornamental grass for smaller areas. The dwarf size facilitates use as a tall ground cover, Accent, specimen, grouping, or mass planting. It also does well in borders, meadows, wild gardens, cottage gardens, naturalized areas, or pond/water gardens.
