    Adds a Dramatic Flare to the Landscape

    Threads of white line the blades of this maiden hair grass, offset by deep bronze blooms.

    Morning Light Grass is a native of Asia, and a versatile grass to add to white gardens or containers. Also called miscanthus or morning light maiden grass, this ornamental grass adds a touch of elegance, even though it’s tall enough to serve as a screen in the landscape.

    Compact Blades with Impact
    The variegated blades that form Morning Light Grass are delicate and lined with silvery-white veins, creating a dramatic, flowing effect. As summer winds to a close, showy red flower heads appear at the top of blades, and the foliage eventually fades to golden brown.

    Easy Maintenance
    Although Morning Light Grass adds a dramatic flare to the landscape, it creates no drama for the gardener. The grass can maintain its shape and interest in partial shade, and really stun in full sun. Drought has little effect, but keeping the plant evenly moist with regular watering makes it healthier. Morning light has a medium growth rate, and should take little time to rise to full height each spring. Simply cut your miscanthus to the ground in late winter to receive a new clump of blades. Few pests or problems affect Morning Light, and the foliage is deer resistant.

    Where to Plant Morning Light Grass
    The gorgeous blades of Morning Light Grass dazzle in any landscape. Consider the grass for woodland or natural gardens or for coastal and other water areas. It’s also a unique choice for a cutting garden. In urban gardens, use the plant in groupings as a privacy screen or a container feature to frame a front walkway. Plant Morning Light Grass alongside yellow potentilla or catmint for complementary colors and foliage.
