Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio' - Dwarf Maiden Grasses - November 2022

This is just over the one-year mark for a trio of grasses that I planted in our backyard late last growing season.  They've been in the ground for 13 months now and are showing their annual seed heads.  These three Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio' Maiden Grasses are tucked in behind the All Gold Japanese Forest Grasses and in front of the Little Lime Hydrangeas.  

Have a look at the photo below to see the three grasses and their first-growing-season seed heads.

This being the first full growing season, I'm thinking that these put down roots this year and will begin to fill-in next year with more foliage.  I put these in this spot to help create a bit of a 'layering' affect with the layers of grasses, shrubs and the Apple tree Belgian Fence in the far back.  Like I do with all of my ornamental grasses, I'll leave these Adagio Maiden Grasses up all Winter - for 'winter interest' and will chop them down early in the Spring/late Winter for the new years' growth to emerge.  

Also...check out the thick layer of Red Oak tree leaves all over the beds.  This year, I'm trying something new - leaving some leaf mulch RIGHT on the beds.  My plan is - once the perennial season is over - head into this bed with the mower and mulch these leaves up right in place.
