Grass, Maiden ‘Morning Light’
5 in stock
‘Morning Light’ is a cultivar that is noted for its very narrow green leaves with white variegation on the margins. Foliage has an overall silvery appearance. Typically forms an upright, rounded clump of foliage growing 4-6′ tall. Not much fall color, with blades eventually turning straw-beige by winter. Tiny reddish-copper flowers appear in long tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in mid to late September, gradually turning into silvery white plumes as the seeds mature. Blooms later than most Miscanthus cultivars. Flower plumes persist well into winter providing good winter interest. ‘Morning Light’ is a somewhat smaller, more fine-textured version of the popular M. s. ‘Gracillimus’.
