The Miscanthus Morning Light Grass, Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light', is an easy recognizable variegated grass.

Miscanthus Morning Light is a very popular miscanthus. It boasts 5' white-edged variegated, narrow leaves. It is quite attractive as the green blades have added highlights of creamy-white margins and mid-veins creating a shimmering silvery appearance.

Its appearance is fine textured and it has a compact growth habit. This plant works well as a specimen plant in the garden, or can be used in container gardens.

The reddish bronze blooms appear in the fall which adds visual excitement to shrub borders. It displays delicate reddish-bronze plumes in late summer.

Place in full sun for best foliage coloration. Miscanthus Morning Light is very tolerant of dry conditions.

Miscanthus Morning Light is deer resistant and easy to grow! It is also salt tolerant.

Use this plant for cut flowers, in containers, for screening, for hedges, and of course, winter interest. Order your Miscanthus Morning Light today!
