This is a real find: a mix of premier modern varieties of Miscanthus sinensis for you to fill your garden with beautiful year-round ornamental grasses for a tiny fraction of what you’d pay for plants! (If you could even find so many fine varieties in plant form, that is!) This seed mix answers the homeowner’s dilemma of how to landscape a nice big property on a limited budget!
Maiden Grass — also known as Chinese Silver Grass or Eulalia — is an evergreen perennial with beautiful plumes that begin toward late summer and go well into fall before turning silver or beige for winter. They remain on the plant, an elegant winter silhouette and a built-in perch for birds (who will pose for you as they pick seeds out of the dried blooms!). Or you can pick the plumes, fresh or dried, to add to indoor arrangements. The classic Maiden Grass is creamy white, turning to bronzy-gold for winter, but this mix contains all the flower colors in the modern family — burgundy, pink, rose, and more!
And it’s not just the flowers that arise in multiple colors on these plants! New Hybrids is a blend of the classic tall, stately, fountainous variety, plus compact and even dwarf types, not to mention cascading and trailing cultivars! Many are variegated, others are different shades of green, and all are distinctively beautiful! Altogether, more than 100 different varieties make up the New Hybrids mix — so maybe you want a couple of packets to get the full show!
One of the easiest and most adaptable of ornamental grasses, Maiden Grass thrives in full sun to light shade. (It will grow in more shade too, but the flowering won’t be as good.) The full-sized plants are useful as a screen, hedge, foundation standout, or specimen planting, while compact varieties fit into the border, along the driveway, and in street plantings. Cascading or trailing types are the perfect groundcover.
Maiden Grass is perennial, and may be sown indoors in late winter for spring transplant, or direct-sown into the late fall garden for spring germination. The first year, most of these hybrids will not flower; like most perennials from seed, they need a season to get growing. You will have foliage aplenty, but they will not reach full size and sport their first blooms until the following summer. From then on, they are virtually carefree, though the best bloom will always be in full sun and well-drained, reasonably moist soil. Divide the full-grown plants every few years, if you like, to make new ones! Enjoy this exceptional mix for years to come. Zones 4-9. Packet is 100 seeds.
