ADAGIO MAIDEN GRASS-Miscanthus sinensis Zone 6-9
Base Price: $11.95

GRASS: ADAGIO MAIDEN GRASS-Miscanthus sinensis Plant Profile: Adagio Maiden Grass (Miscanthus sinensis ‘Adagio’) Zone 6-9

We raise these in 1-3" six packs, 1-Gal, Full Gal, and sometimes 2-Gal.

Miscanthus sinensis ‘Adagio’ or Adagio for short. This maiden grass is such a delight to use in the garden as it works with virtually every plant that is paired with. It is a compact version of the larger maiden grasses like ‘Gracillimus’ so it can fit in all but the smallest gardens. I’m getting ahead of myself a bit so let’s step back and look at the conditions that Adagio would like to call home. Like all Miscanthus, Adagio prefers full sun and well-drained soil. If placed in a little shade, it will perform fine but you can expect it to be a floppy mess if sited anywhere with less than 6 hours of direct sun. Adagio needs well-drained soil but that soil can be moist, well-drained soil or dry, well-drained soil…it’s tolerant of both. I have found that Miscanthus performs best in lean soil that tends to be on the dry side; I think it keeps them looking stout and they have less tendency to flop. If you live in a coastal region where the soil tends to be high in salts, you are in luck with Miscanthus of all types. Adagio reaches a height of around 4′ and they are equally as wide. When they are in bloom, their height can easily expand to 5′. They form a solid mound of foliage that has delightful wispy tips that blow in the wind to capture your attention; they really are an eye-catching plant in the garden. If you can site them so that they are backlit by sunlight either in the early morning or late evening, you will be rewarded with a glowing display that lasts throughout the seasons. Miscanthus ‘Adagio’ is a four season plant…the only time that it isn’t showy is when it is cut to the ground in late February or early March. Here’s a tip for performing the most disdained chore in the garden: the easiest way that I know to cut back ornamental grasses is to tie them together about 12″ above the ground with either twine or a bungee cord. You can then use hedge trimmers or a saw to cut below the twine. What you are left with is a neatly bundled package of brown foliage that is easy to dispose of. Even though I said that this is the easiest method, there is actually an easier way to eliminate the winter foliage: burning. I’m not recommending that you burn yours since I don’t have enough insurance to cover the cost of your house when it catches fire but I’ve seen it done before and it is remarkably efficient. Within 2 to 3 minutes of setting the fire, the 5′ grass is reduced to a pile of ash. Miscanthus ‘Adagio’ is a wonderful companion plant to Knockout Roses. The dark green Miscanthus foliage is the perfect backdrop to the sea of color that the roses provide from April until December (in the Richmond area). It’s hard to come up with a pair of tougher plants than Miscanthus and Knockout Roses. They are both remarkably drought tolerant once established and relatively free of pest problems. (See this link for more information on a disease that is threatening the Knockouts.) The plumes that emerge from Adagio in August and September are a welcome sight to a tired landscape that has been through a typical Mid-Atlantic gardening summer of drought and high temperatures. These plumes change to tan as the foliage does when the first frosts begin in the fall. They remain remarkably attractive through the winter and the birds enjoy the refuge that they offer. Miscanthus ‘Adagio’ is quite the sight to behold when the snow begins to fall too. I highly recommend Adagio as a carefree plant that can fit into all but the smallest of gardens. It will help soften hard lines in the garden and provide you with four seasons of beauty. If you have experience with Miscanthus sinensis ‘Adagio’, leave me a comment below or e-mail me at stacey@midatlanticgardening.com. Happy gardening!

PAMPAS GRASS-WHITE/SILVER-Cortaderia selloana

Pampas Grass
Common Name: Silver Pampas Grass, Uruguayan Pampas Grass
Genus: Cortaderia
Species: selloana

Pampas Grass is a sort of grass that dwells mostly in the Pampas of South America. It is a very pretty, large and unique kind of grass.
The habitat of Pampas Grass is mostly moist areas in the South American grassland biome. The climate of this biome is pretty hot with grassy plains. Pampas Grass grows the best in sun filled places with somewhat damp ground. It also grows well along a small stream bank or in  shallow moist
ravines. An amazing feature about Pampas Grass is that it can live in almost any habitat. This amazing grass can grow in hard, rocky areas, flooded areas, dry and damp ground plus its normal habitat. The leaves die during frosts in northern climates, but grow back in the spring. The habitat it flourishes in is a damp, warm environment like that of the South American Pampas.
Pampas Grass can grow to an impressive size for grass, about 8-12 feet tall. Its leaves are only .5 inches to .75 inches wide but can be 10 feet long. It grows in large clumps called tussocks. Each tussock is about 12 feet tall with many plants in it. The leaves are razor sharp and could slice you open just by rubbing against them. The leaves are a deep green color. The Pampas Grass has large pink plume like flowers that give the grass an ornamental sort of look. It also has oval shaped seeds growing off of it, which are .25 inches long. Its seed has a tan crusty shell. The female plants are prettier and their flowers are fuller.
Pampas Grass can adapt to most places and can adapt fairly quickly. This quick adaptation is the product of a deep root system that digs down and finds water so it can survive in the driest areas.
Pampas Grass is used in many ways. A common use is as a hedge because of the razor sharp leaves and stiff stems. It is used mainly as a decoration. Pampas Grass makes a nice ornamental plant because of its large plume-like flowers. The only setback to having it as an ornament is the sharp leaves because just brushing against it can give you a cut that becomes inflamed. Many people put this plant in garden beds or on lawns. It is not farmed for any purpose because there is no value in it for farmers.
The Pampas Grass is not an endangered plant. These plants are very common in the South American Pampas. This plant has an incredible seed output. Each plant puts out over 1 million seeds in its life time. This large seed output results in Pampas Grass being a very prolific plant. California has listed them as an invasive weed that pushes out native plants. They are banned in New Zealand and Hawaii and are on their noxious weed list.  There are, in all 24 species native to South America and four indigenous ones to New Zealand. Maintenance of Pampas grass is minimal, so everyone who wants to enjoy this tall willowy grass, can do it without much worry! Z 7-9

AFRICAN YELLOW IRIS or PEACOCK FLOWER-Dietes bicolor

With its unusual flowers, attractive shape and ease of cultivation, the yellow wild iris is a versatile garden plant.
The genus name "Dietes" is derived from the Greek "dis" which means twice and "etes" which means an associate and is drawing attention to the position of this genus between Moraea and Iris which are its two relatives. The species name "bicolor" means two-coloured.
Dietes bicolor forms clumps of erect sword-shaped leaves. The adult plant is approximately 1m wide and 1m tall. The leaves are 1 to 2cm wide, light green in colour and have a double central vein. They are arranged in flat fans similar to other members of the iris family. The plant spreads by means of its modified stems (rhizomes), which are located below the soil surface.
The flowers are about 60 mm in diameter, flat, light yellow with brown markings and are produced on the ends of much branched flower stalks. The flowers only last for one day, but because so many buds are produced the plant is almost always in flower from October until January (spring and summer). The fruit is a club-shaped capsule approximately 25mm in diameter which partially splits to release the seeds.
The flower of Dietes bicolor is made up of three functional units, each consisting of an outer tepal and a style branch. Each of these units must be entered separately by the pollinating insect (probably a bee). Nectar is secreted at the base of each of the outer tepals. When the insect pollinator pushes itself between the outer tepal and style branch in search of nectar, the pollen is deposited on its back and as it moves from plant to plant it spreads pollen from one flower to the other resulting in pollination.
The insects, in turn, attract various insectivorous birds to the garden. Joffe (2001) reports that the roots of D.bicolor were traditionally used as a charm to protect the strengthen the wearer.
The genus Dietes is only found in South Africa and on Lord Howe island between Australia and New Zealand. D. bicolor is found naturally in the Bathurst region of the Eastern Cape in South Africa. An interesting fact about Dietes is that of the six species that are known, five of them occur in the eastern parts of South Africa with one on Lord Howe island namely D. robinsoniana. The most primitive of these (according to molecular analysis) is D. bicolor followed by D. robinsoniana on Lord Howe island. This suggests that D. robinsoniana got to Lord Howe island through dispersal from an African origin, although how this could have happened is at present unknown.
Growing Dietes bicolor
The yellow wild iris is fast growing which makes it ideal for use in areas that need to be established rapidly. Although it occurs naturally near streams and in marshy places, it is also drought resistant and frost hardy. Dietes bicolor forms a large spiky clump, ideal for use as an accent plant near ponds or at the sides of steps, pathways and entrances. Because the plant multiplies rapidly, it can be easily propagated for large scale plantings. Its evergreen, spreading habit makes it suitable for use as a long lasting groundcover. The flowers are not suitable for cut flower arrangements as they are so short lived. The plant is able to grow easily in very poor soil with little water and can be useful when plants need to be established on poor subsoils as is often the case after earth moving has taken place on building sites. The yellow wild iris is often mass planted on road islands.
The plants also thrive in damp situations and will tolerate light shade, but do better in full sun except in hot inland gardens where partial shade is best. For optimal results plant the yellow wild iris in soil containing plenty of compost and water regularly. The yellow wild iris has been cultivated in Europe since the early 1800's.
Dietes bicolor can be propagated by dividing the rhizomes of large clumps after the flowering period or in autumn. The seed of the plant germinates readily when sown in spring or autumn in a good, moist seedling medium.
Dietes bicolor belongs to the family Iridaceae (iris family). These plants are perennial herbs in the form of either rhizomes or corms. There are about 82 genera and 1700 species belonging to Iridaceae. Over half of the species of Iridaceae occur in South Africa, in 38 genera. Plants in the family Iridaceae have sword-shaped leaves which are arranged in 2 ranks (a row, especially a vertical row). The flowers are regular or irregular with 3 stamens and an inferior ovary. The genus Dietes (wild iris) is a perennial evergreen which used to be included with Moraea (another member of the iris family) but was separated owing to the nature of its growth. Dietes do not have corms as are found in Moraea, but have a rhizome. Several other Dietes species, including D. grandiflora make good garden plants.
This evergreen perennial blooms throughout the year a flower with yellow, red, and orange markings.  The blooms come on stalks 2-6’ tall with the plant 2-4’ wide, and used as a groundcover, accent plant, or border planting.  Zones 8-11.
