| 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.
