Miscanthus 'Fire Dragon' Maiden Grass)
Also called, Japanese Silver Grass. Set your fall garden ablaze with the traditional red, burgundy, and orange harvest hues! The showy, upright foliage of this ornamental grass is dark green with a thin silver stripe during summer months and transitions to vibrant, fiery blades by autumn. In late summer, large, feathery silver plumes arrive on stiff stems, adding metaphorical smoke to the fire.
Mass plantings to garden borders. Plus, this variety is remarkably low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and deer resistant! Give this flashy ornamental grass well-drained soil for long-lasting winter interest!
