Plant Description

Morning Light is probably the most elegant and refined of all ornamental grasses. Its graceful narrow leaves are green with white margins giving the plant a silvery cast. This hardy grass works great as an accent plant for beds and borders and it can also be used in large containers. Being shorter than most other Miscanthus grasses lends its use in smaller gardens. At seasons end, leave its foliage through winter then cut it back to around 12? in early March. Established clumps can also be divided for more plants after a few years.
