Miscanthus sinensis ‘Morning Light’ is a non-invasive, clumping ornamental grass that glows when it is back-lit by the sun. Bronze-red flower plumes rise above the upright arching leaves. Very well-behaved, distinctively different ornamental grass. In any areas with not very much snow Miscanthus sinensis ‘Morning Light’ can provide winter interest. In our botanical gardens we cut down all our ornamental grasses in late fall, around early November, to prevent moles and voles from nesting in the foliage that falls with the weight of the winter snow.
