This 1996 release should really excite small gardeners...make that people with small gardens. M. 'Little Kitten' was received from Jim Waddick via Germany, via Japan...whew! Our 7-year-old clump is the smallest maiden grass we grow (may get slightly larger with age). The tiny mound of narrow green foliage, to 15" tall, is topped with plumes to 30" tall in late summer and fall. Just like a little kitten, as long as it stays small and you feed it...it's cute...'nuff said!
