Why plant Adagio Maiden Grass?
If you’re a musician, you know the word Adagio means a slow and easy pace, and that’s the feeling you get from Adagio Maiden Grass in your landscape. This easy-to-please Fringe makes a lush, fountain-like mound of slender green leaves. When the wind blows, this graceful Fringe sways along with it. In late summer, you’ll take notice of the stately white plumes emerging above the foliage. When sited with the sunlight behind them, the plumes shimmer and glow in a mesmerizing way. An easygoing Fringe for beds, borders, and large containers, Adagio hits all the right notes!
Maiden Grass is an Asian Fringe, native to Japan, China, Taiwan, and Korea, though it is loved all over the world in countless different forms. This particular selection was introduced by the late, legendary plantsman Kurt Bluemel. Bluemel was born in what is now the Czech Republic, but he fled to Germany with his family at the age of 13 when the Communists took power in 1945. Overnight he went from schoolboy to political refugee. He had to help support his family at that tender age and first worked as a farmhand and later as a nursery worker. He eventually emigrated to the U.S. and became a well-respected nurseryman in Maryland.

How To Plant Adagio Maiden Grass
Adagio Maiden Grass is a fast-growing and easy-to-please Fringe. It will perform best in all-day sun and appreciates regular water and well-drained soil. Too much water or fertilizer can lead to floppy growth, so don’t overdo it. Adagio has proven to be invasive in areas with long growing seasons, and some states have banned its sale. It cannot be shipped to Connecticut or New York.
How To Water
Water your Adagio grasses weekly, then more often in extreme heat or drought. When planted in containers, you'll want to water more frequently.
How To Fertilize
Adagio Maiden Grass is not one that requires fertilization to ensure the best possible outcomes, but you may feed your plant if it needs that extra boost. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food during springtime for a promising growing season.
How To Prune
To help keep your Maiden Grass healthy, prune back dead fronds in the late winter and early spring or ensure space for new growth. Old specimens may be rejuvenated by division; simply dig up chunks in late spring shortly after growth has resumed and replant.
