Ornamental Grass Garden Combo! Sale!

One plant each of ornamental grass ‘Adagio’, ‘Moudry’, & ‘Punktchen’ (shown in this order). A great choice for the landscape!

‘Adagio’ is a dwarf eulalia grass cultivar which is one of the shortest of the many Miscanthus cultivars available in commerce today, typically growing to only 2-3′ tall. It is an upright, warm season, clump-forming ornamental grass which features extremely narrow, silver-gray blades which turn yellow in fall. Tiny pink-tinged flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in late summer, gradually turning into creamy white plumes by fall as the seeds mature. Foliage and flower plumes persist well into winter providing good winter interest.

‘Moudry’ is an ornamental fountain grass, which typically grows in graceful, spreading clumps to 2-3′ tall and as wide. It is most noted for its distinctive dark purple flower spikes. Showy, purplish-black, bristly, bottle brush-like flower spikes arch outward from the clump in late summer like water spraying from a fountain (hence the common name). Features narrow, medium to deep green leaves (to 1/2″ wide) in summer, changing to golden yellow in fall and fading to beige in late fall. Foliage usually remains attractive throughout the winter. Flower spikes turn brownish as the seeds form, and spikes usually persist until late fall or early winter before shattering.

‘Punktchen’ is a eulalia grass, which is noted for its erect, spiky, compact form, its tall flower plumes and its horizontally banded foliage. It is one of the shorter Miscanthus varieties, typically forming an upright foliage clump to 3-4′ tall, however it sends up unusually long flower stalks (to 3′ above the foliage), thus bringing the total height of the grass to 5-7′ tall when in flower. Features narrow (to 3/8″ wide), finely-textured, dark green leaves with zebra-striped, golden yellow bands extending horizontally across the leaves at approximately 4″ intervals. Foliage gradually fades to tan after frost. Tiny reddish-brown flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences well above the foliage in late summer, gradually turning into silvery white plumes in fall. Flower plumes persist well into winter providing good winter interest. Prefers well-draining soil.

Grasses add variety to many types of gardens, including water, Japanese, rock, wildlife, craft, xeriscape, container and others. Ornamental grasses add two elements to the garden experience that are not readily obtained from many other plants: movement and sound. Grasses look well against a dark background and placed to catch morning or evening light. Grasses also add a significant vertical presence to the winter landscape and are commonly left standing until spring.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to hold the roots. Fill the hole with water and position the plant so the crown (where the root meets the stem) is just slightly below the soil line. Fill the hole with soil and water again. A slow release fertilizer may be used each spring, though it's not necessary.
