Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio'

Dwarf Maiden Grass

Deciduous Grass / Grass-Like

Adagio is one of the smaller maiden grass but not let that fool you. You'll still want to allow plenty of room for it to reach its full glory. It's wonderful grass worth growing but give it a spot with at least 4 to 5 feet to spread, then stand back and enjoy.
