Wine colored stalks rise from delicate silver variegated foliage. Appreciated for its more rounded upright habit. Showy light plumes display a pink blush all fall and into the winter. Straw-beige winter foliage with plumes persisting to provide pleasing winter interest. Morning Light is a smaller, finer-textured Miscanthus when compared to Gracillimus. Picture-perfect with sunshine highlighting the silky plumes.
Northern gardeners can achieve the look of Pampas Grass (too tender for the north) with Miscanthus.
