Description

Adding ornamental grasses can soften up areas of the landscape and bring visual appeal to your yard.

Morning Light Grass will definitely brighten up your day! With its silvery, sharp foliage with shimmery ends, it makes this ornamental grass a real winner!

Each leaf stem of this ornamental grass has a white edge with green in the middle. This grass has more of a narrow texture compared to other Miscanthus grasses.

As summer turns to fall, look for nice red-bronze colored blooms. The blooms on top of this grass give it some character and add color to the landscape.

Morning Light will reach a height up to 4-6 feet tall and a spread of 3-4 feet wide. It's drought tolerant and insect/disease resistant.

How To Care

When planting your Morning Light Miscanthus Grass choose the best location for this plant to thrive. Be sure to plant this grass in growing zones 5 to 9. This grass grows best in full sun to part shade. Miscanthus is adaptable to a variety of soil as long as the soil is well drained.

Water deeply once or twice weekly when newly planted (about 3 months) to help the roots grow properly. After the first year Miscanthus Sinensis is extremely drought tolerant and only rarely needs water. Water thoroughly in extreme heat, especially in the first summer. Fertilize lightly with a slow release, balanced fertilizer in spring for optimal growth. Prune back Morning Light Miscanthus to about 4-6 inches in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges.

Miscanthus grass is extremely hardy as well as pest and disease resistant. It is also deer, rabbit, pollution, and salt tolerant.

Landscape Ideas

Morning Light Miscanthus Grass works great in clumps of 3 or even by itself.  It's perfect for an accent in any type of garden or mixed bed.  Try this grass in containers for a really cool look.  The flowing habit and unique color and texture soften areas of the landscape and bring vibrance to areas that are dull.  Try junipers, physocarpus, hollies and arborvitae for companion plants.

Plant 5 feet apart to give each plant plenty of room to thrive.

Morning Light Maiden Grass

Planting tree was absolutely excellent. I ordered 3 gallon maiden grasses and they were root packed, healthy maiden grasses, ready to showcase in our yard. Planting tree was highly responsive to our questions. Also, the plants arrived quickly, and very well packed, to minimize damage. I would absolutely order from them again.
