Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' is also known as Chinese Silver Grass which reflects the light, silvery-green tone that is created by the cream and green variegation on the long, slender leaves of the plant. On first look this lovely ornamental grass almost seems to be lit from within, due to the paler leaf colour and lighter tone.
Miscanthus 'Morning Light' is an extremely elegant ornamental grass with long, upright stems, of which the outer stems delicately arch to create a visually pleasing shape that is almost fountain-like. Its extremely fine foliage is fairly dense and moves beauitfully in any breeze, creating an attractive silhouette whilst softening any lines or edges in the garden. Once established this grass is quite hardy and can even withstand drought. Its many qualities have ensured it is a deserving receipient of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
A mid-sized ornamental grass, Miscathus 'Morning Light' can grow to a maximum height and spread of 150cm x 100cm and grows best in a sunny, open location in fertile but moist, well-drained soil. As this grass is a deciduous perennial it is best to cut back to ground level in late winter, before new shoots appear in the spring.
Use Miscanthus 'Morning Light' as a planting focal point or for screening in the garden or alternatively it will also grow very successfully in a pot or planter.
Cut back this deciduous ornamental grass plant in late winter down to ground level. Ensure this is done before new shoots appear in spring.
