Miscanthus Morning Light, also known as ‘Eulalia’ and holder of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit,  is a popular ornamental grass prized for its delicate foliage and delicate plumes of flowers. With its narrow, arching leaves and upright habit, it adds interest and texture to borders and wildflower gardens.

Miscanthus Morning Light is a clump forming grass that grows up to 1.5 metres tall with a similar spread.  The leaves are narrow and arching, with a distinctive white variegation that adds interest and texture to the garden. In late Summer and early Autumn, the plants produce delicate plumes of flowers that rise above the foliage, adding additional interest and movement to the garden.

Miscanthus Sinensis is a species of grass that is native to China, Japan, and Korea. Morning Light is a cultivar of this species, prized for its distinctive foliage colour and upright habit. It was first introduced to the gardening world in the 1990s and has since become a popular choice for gardeners, due to its versatility and ease of care.  This Miscanthus is adaptable and can be grown in a range of soils, from sandy to clay. It prefers full sun and can tolerate drought and high heat. This grass is also highly resistant to pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance choice for gardeners.

Once established, it requires very little care. It should be watered regularly during its first growing season, but once established, it is drought tolerant. Prune the grass back to the ground in late Winter or early Spring, to encourage new growth and maintain a neat, compact form.

Miscanthus sinensis Morning Light is a versatile grass that can be used in a range of different garden settings. It is particularly effective when planted in large drifts, where its striking foliage colour can be seen to best effect. This grass is also suitable for use as a specimen plant, or as a background plant in borders and prairies.
