Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' is a stunning ornamental grass that is highly prized for its delicate, airy foliage and graceful form. This clump-forming grass typically grows to a height of 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, making it a perfect choice for adding height and texture to any landscape or garden.

The leaves of Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' are a pale green color with creamy-white margins, creating a beautiful variegated effect that shimmers in the sunlight. The foliage is thin and delicate, which adds a sense of movement to the plant as it sways gently in the breeze.

This ornamental grass is highly adaptable and can thrive in a variety of soil types, including clay, sand, and loam. It is also drought-tolerant once established and requires minimal maintenance, making it an excellent choice for low-maintenance landscapes.

In late summer, Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' produces graceful, feathery plumes of tiny, pinkish-white flowers that rise above the foliage. These blooms persist through the fall and into the winter, providing visual interest and texture to the garden even after the growing season has ended.

Overall, Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' is a beautiful and versatile ornamental grass that adds a touch of elegance and movement to any landscape or garden. It is a great choice for tree nurseries looking to offer their customers a low-maintenance, yet highly attractive ornamental grass option.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
