The Scout Maiden Grass is perfect for adding movement and structure to any garden. Also known as Miscanthus sinensis Scout™, this ornamental grass is great for adding some height as it can grow to around 6 feet tall. Its tall and slender blades sway in the gentlest of breezes and appear fresh green with a white midrib in summer; the color fades to yellow-beige as the season progresses. In late summer, fluffy pink-beige blooms develop, ready to dance on top of the foliage. 

With its upright form, the Scout Maiden Grass is an erect and structural grass. As part of the WorryFree® Non-invasive Collection, this Miscanthus is infertile and will not self-seed and take over. Being clump forming, Scout Maiden is ideally suited for dotting around a border or growing in a drift. The Scout Maiden Grass can also be grown in a large container to place on a patio or deck.

Scout Maiden Grass Care

The Scout Maiden Grass performs best when grown in full sun, but can tolerate some light shade if necessary. It prefers a free-draining soil that is kept moist. For its root system to develop, this grass needs to be watered frequently after planting and for the first season at least. However, once established, it will tolerate some dry periods. When grown in fertile soil, the Scout Maiden Grass rarely requires extra fertilization. 

Before its new growth appears, simply cut back the foliage to 3-6 inches high in late winter or early spring. For extra protection, any container-grown plants can be moved to shelter from the worst of the winter weather. 

Scout Maiden Grass Spacing

When mature, the Scout Maiden Grass can grow to around 5-6 feet tall by 2-3 feet wide. When growing this Miscanthus in a group or drift, it can be planted about 30 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
