tall x 24-48" wide. Introduced from Japan in 1976, 'Morning Light' Miscanthus
Grass is now considered the best of the Miscanthus group, and a stunning
specimen plant for garden or meadow. The clump-forming habit makes Miscanthus
Grass an excellent choice for formal, structured plantings and natural looking
landscapes as well. Foliage turns various shades of gold or bronze in autumn
and holds up well throughout the winter; erect flowers shine in the summer sun,
then turn soft and fluffy in winter, and persist beautifully in dried
arrangements. Plant in a sunny position in the landscape. Let foliage stand for
winter habitat and visual interest and cut back to 2-3 inches above ground in
early spring before new growth begins.
