Achieves 150-180cm when mature Flowering period: flowers appear in October after warm summers Flower colour: reddish brown, fading to silver over time Other features:stands well through the winter Hardiness: fully hardy A species of hardy, perennial grasses originating in China. Their clump-forming habit, with no invasive spreading rhizomes, is easily contained within gardens of all sizes. A number of excellent breeding programmes in Europe and the USA over the past 25 years have developed varieties better-able to offer reliable flowering displays in cooler, European summers. Miscanthus 'Morning Light' is a selected sport from Miscanthus sinensis Gracillimus, and is a particularly elegant and versatile form. Slender emerald green blades have narrow cream margins, arching gently at their tips to create a 'fountain' effect. In warm summers, reddish brown flowers open in October and endure through the winter. Garden care: Leave top growth standing through winter. Cut back to ground level late February as new shoots appear within the crown.
