Go Back Dixieland Maiden Grass

Miscanthus sinensis 'Dixieland'
Deer Resistant IconRock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Grasses

A dwarf form of ‘Variegatus’ with very similar green and white variegated foliage but a shorter, more compact growth habit. This selection should not need staking like its taller cousin. It provides a strong white element to the landscape which is especially pronounced when planted in front of larger shrubs or evergreens. The silky pink plumes which appear in late summer are very showy. A good choice for containers.

Miscanthus is versatile from a design standpoint; it can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond’s edge. Plant this grass where its wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed.
