Miscanthus sinensis (Miscanthis, Morning Light)

Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light'

Morning Light Miscanthis is a very graceful plant with long, narrow, elegant blades that are green in the center with white margins giving the plant a silver appearance when viewed from a distance. Morning Light produces reddish bronze plumes in the autumn that mature to a fluff, creamy white adding to the plants tan coloration of the winter months. Morning Light Miscanthis is a great choice as a specimen or in a mixed shrub and perennial border.
