Little Fountain Grass

Miscanthus sinensis ‘Kleine Fontaine’

Miscanthus

If Pygmalion were a gardener, Miscanthus would come to life as fountains, some of them spouting tall and upright to 10 feet. Graceful and robust, they’re favored for their luxuriant foliage and silky terminal panicles. Striking as singular specimens, Miscanthus are also excellent when massed in the perennial bed or a mixed border. Attractive throughout most of the year, with yellow, purple, scarlet and burgundy fall colors, they fade to a lovely warm ivory in winter.

<i>Miscanthus sinensis</i> ‘Kleine Fontaine’

The preeminent plantsman, Ernest Pagels, outdid himself when he bred this exquisite ornamental grass, considered by many to be the most beautiful of the more diminutive Miscanthus. Its merits are numerous: an elegant compact silhouette, early-to-bloom rouge-tinged flowers held well above fine-textured blades and excellent cold hardiness. Unlikely to overwhelm its neighbors, Little Fountain Grass ushers impressive arching deep green accents and stylish long-lasting plumes into any planting, especially those short on space.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
