Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light'
Common Name: Maiden Grass Family: Poaceae (The Grass Family)

Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light'
Zoom In Photo:

'Morning Light' is noted for its very narrow green leaves with white variegation on the margins giving an overall silvery appearance. Typically forms an upright, rounded clump of foliage growing 4-6 feet tall. Tiny reddish-copper flowers appear in long tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in mid to late September, gradually turning into silver. Blooms later than most Miscanthus cultivars. A smaller and more fine-textured version of the popular 'Gracillimus'. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
