Morning Light Maiden Grass Perennial - Miscanthus - 2.5" Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
An especially refined and elegant ornamental grass. Fine leaf blades are green with clean, very thin, white margins that give the plant a silvery cast when viewed from a distance. This plant is luminous when backlit by the early morning or late afternoon sun. It is prized for its rounded habit that never flops. Many consider 'Morning Light' to be one of the finest cultivars of Miscanthus.
This grass requires a very long, hot growing season to be able to produce flowers. When it does, they are spectacular reddish bronze plumes that appear in late fall. As the seeds mature, they become cream colored and fluffy; they make wonderful accents to the tan winter foliage.
Miscanthus is versatile from a design standpoint; it can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond's edge. Plant this grass where its wonderful winter interest can be enjoyed.
Grasses provide structure and texture to your garden, offering many shapes, heights and colors. Most will “bloom’ with attractive seed fronds that move with the breeze.
