Little Miss Grass
A Colorful Ornamental Grass for Colder Climates!
Get Amazing Color... Even in Northern States
For gardeners who want the natural look of color in their landscape, Little Miss grass fits the bill. You get deep green foliage in early spring... which then turns to a burgundy red in late May. Grasses like Little Miss can provide as much color as most flowering perennials. In late summer and fall, flowering seedheads appear above the clump, adding more red and buff color to the two-toned foliage.
Perfect for Containers and Mass Plantings
Little Miss is a maiden grass that is smaller than some ornamental grasses. With a height of 2-3 ft., the grass makes an attractive mass border or low planting for the front of flower beds. It's also small enough to feature in a container, mixed with shorter flowering plants with cream or peach blooms. Little Miss can handle some drought and full sun, and adds a stunning, colorful and modern look to formal or natural gardens.
Average watering keeps Little Miss healthiest. The grass can be cut to the ground late each winter or early spring as new growth just begins to appear. In fact, annual pruning helps the grass thrive. Cutting the grass blades carefully prevents damage, especially helping gardeners avoid cutting into the crown. The best strategy is to look for growth points in the clump's leaves.
