During the growing season, the outer arching stems can seriously flop, opening the center of the plant. This is especially true for maiden grass planted in partial shade. Trimming off blades growing higher on the stem can help stop the plant from arching over onto nearby plants, while maintaining a natural look. In climates where the plant isn’t hit by frost, control its size by cutting miscanthus back by half or more in midsummer to control its size and freshen its look, if necessary.
