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.
