Miscanthus Morning Light Grass is an ornamental that earns its keep in any garden by standing tall and keeping things fresh and exciting with its thin whiskery leaves. Its foliage is a bright green with creamy white margins. It also has center veins that create a silvery sheen as this grass sways in the sun.

When summer rolls into fall, Miscanthus Morning Light Grass sends up feathery and festive plumes. These joyous plumes create quite a visual impact with their reddish-bronze coloration. These plumes hang around through winter, giving your garden four seasons of interest.

Because of its fine foliage and graceful form and movement, Miscanthus Morning Light Grass lends itself well to almost any occasion. This excellent grass is easily recognizable from afar. Its stately size and dense form make it ideal for a back planting or as a screen. This delightful grass also makes a wonderful specimen or addition to your grass garden. Its height makes it a great accent piece or thriller.

Plant your Morning Light Grass in full sun for best performance. It is deer resistant, so you don't have to worry about your investment becoming Bambi's snack. This grass is also salt tolerant and drought tolerant once established.

Each year early spring, cut your ornamental grasses down to just a few inches removing all of last year's growth and flower plumes and let all new growth start from the ground up each year. It is best to spring prune and not in the fall.

Welcome the Morning Light Grass into your garden and let it brighten your day. It will surely become a shining star in your yard. Order now!
