Little Zebra  Maiden Grass

General Information

Little Zebra Maiden Grass forms a midsize mound of green foliage. This dwarf selection has creamy yellow bands that appear in horizontal lines across the leaves. In late summer, tiny gray-purple flowers appear above the foliage, forming feathery wine-purple plumes. The plumes fade to a creamy tan in winter, providing another season of interest.  The foliage clump will expand in circumference by rhizomes. It can, also, be propagated by division. A wonderful choice for containers and small areas of your garden or landscape. This wonderful ornamental grass will add great interest to your landscape. Use in mass for a border or edging.  Use as an accent plant. Great for naturalized areas or planting in meadow and wild gardens. Plant on slopes and hillsides to help control erosion.
