We’re Fair-ly Certain You’ll Be Impressed! Miscanthus sinensis My Fair Maiden™

Posted by John Friel on Nov 18th 2021

The world’s premier genus of ornamental grasses includes lots of stunning varieties. We offer three that have a unique advantage: They’re infertile. They can’t self-sow and pop up where they’re not welcome.

We’re spotlighting them all, one at a time. 

We’ve seen Scout™, so now let’s look at My Fair Maiden.


This is a large, impressive grass, tall and broad. Vigorous yet graceful upright/arching clumps are composed of broad blades, bright rich green with clean white midribs. In late summer, it’s topped with a generous crown of buff plumes.

Culture notes

Miscanthus can be slow to emerge in spring in colder areas. Be patient: It grows vigorously once it gets going.

Exposure: Full sun.

Hardiness: Zones 5 – 10.

Landscape: Performs best in fertile, well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Fairly drought-tolerant once established.

Maintenance: Wait until late winter/early spring to cut back. Miscanthus brings movement and structure to the garden even when dormant.


My Fair Maiden PP26387 is the result of a cooperative venture teaming NC State and Darwin Perennials. It comes in beefy 38-cell liners from Emerald Coast Growers – your easy choice!
