Miscanthus sinensis 'Squaw', also known as Dwarf Maiden Grass, is a stunning ornamental grass that would make a great addition to any garden or landscape. This cultivar of Miscanthus sinensis is a compact variety, growing to a height of 3 to 4 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide.

'Squaw' has a dense, clumping habit and its foliage is narrow and arching, with a beautiful green color in the summer, turning to a golden-bronze hue in the fall. The leaves of this grass have a fine texture and provide movement and interest in the garden, swaying gently in the breeze.

In the late summer and early fall, 'Squaw' produces stunning plumes of reddish-pink flowers that rise above the foliage. These flowers persist well into the winter, adding interest to the landscape even after the growing season has ended.

Miscanthus sinensis 'Squaw' is a low-maintenance grass that is drought-tolerant and deer-resistant. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. This grass is perfect for use in borders, containers, or as a specimen plant. Its compact size makes it ideal for smaller gardens or for planting in groups to create a mass of texture and color.

Overall, Miscanthus sinensis 'Squaw' is a beautiful and versatile ornamental grass that would be an excellent addition to any garden or landscape.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
