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 ft. Graceful and robust, they’re favored for their lush foliage and silky terminal panicles. Striking as a single specimen, Miscanthus is also excellent when massed in the perennial bed or a mixed border. Attractive year-round, with fall colors of yellow, purple, scarlet and burgundy, they fade to a lovely warm ivory in winter.

The preeminent plantsman, Ernest Pagels, out did 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’ effectively ushers arching, deep green fluid accents and stylish long lasting plumes into any planting, especially those short on space.

Blooms July–November.

Size: 3' 0"–4-1/2' high x 3' 0"–3-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
