Miscanthus sinensis ‘Adagio’ produces fine-textured, narrow leaves and grows in a stylish, compact, rounded shape. At four feet, five with bloom, this dwarf Miscanthus is sought-after for small patios and gardens. Dwarf Maiden Grass is also prized for use in borders and massed plantings, or as a foreground for larger Maiden Grass cultivars. It puts on a lovely display in late summer when fan-shaped, rose-colored flowers rise above the foliage. Leaves turn a beautiful burgundy shade in fall. Dwarf Maiden Grass can be left standing for winter interest; cut back in spring before new growth appears. The cultivar name ‘Adagio’ comes from the Italian ad agio, meaning “at ease,” a term used in music and ballet to signify slow movements. Miscanthus sinensis ‘Adagio’ certainly complies as it dances with the slightest wind. This is a Kurt Bluemel introduction.
