Gracillimus is a maiden grass (eulalia) which is very popular among both interior as well as landscape designers. It offers a lush effect of dense tufts of narrow, rich green leaves, elegantly arching. It is not very tall but can be quite substantial given the space in your garden. Tassel-like flowers are bronze as them emerge, show up much later than on other miscanthus varieties, and are not much taller than the tuft.

Eulalia does not tend to be invasive. It is best grown in sunny and warm areas, in almost any well-drained soil with only occasional watering in summer. It hates boggy soil quite surprisingly copes well with heavy clay unless its roots stand in water before they establish. It is recommended to tie up the leaves before winter and cut the clump back in early spring, about 10-20 cm above ground level. This variety is very hardy, it can withstand temperatures down to about -34°C (USDA zone 4).
