Morning Light Maiden Grass
Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light'
|Description||Dense clumps of slender, green blades with creamy white margins and midveins that create a shimmering silvery appearance. A superb grass that adds visual excitement wherever used. Reddish inflorescences that persist through winter provide an interesting accent to bare winterscapes. Wonderful texture for beds and borders.|
|Light||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Forms clumps 5 ft. tall, 3 to 4 ft. wide; plumes reach 6 ft. tall.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||Even more white than its variegated sister, this is an improved accent for beds and borders. Plant as a single vertical accent among low-growing, dark-green plants, or line it up as a hedge or informal linear cluster. Try matched potted specimens on corners of a square patio. Perfect near water gardens and fountains as wildlife cover, to disguise mechanical pumps or filters and for the illusion of reeds. Also lovely in cobalt-blue, glazed ceramic pots for patio, porch or terrace.|
|Companion Plants||Ninebark (Physocarpus); Juniper (Juniperus); Potentilla (Potentilla); Aster (Aster); Cranesbill (Geranium); Catmint (Nepeta)|
|Care||Easily grown in average, evenly moist, well-drained, loamy soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, tolerates moderate dry spells. Cut foliage clumps back to 3 inches above the ground and apply fertilizer in late winter to early spring.|
