Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' is a beautiful ornamental grass cultivar that is commonly known as Maiden Hair Grass. It is a clump-forming, warm-season grass that typically grows in a dense, upright habit, with arching leaves that give it a graceful, flowing appearance.

The most striking feature of 'Morning Light' is its variegated foliage, which has narrow, silvery white margins that surround a central green stripe. As the season progresses, the foliage takes on a golden hue, adding even more interest to the plant's appearance. In autumn, the leaves turn a warm coppery orange before fading to beige for the winter.

This grass typically grows to a height of 4-5 feet (1.2-1.5 m) and spreads about 3-4 feet (0.9-1.2 m) wide. It prefers full sun but can tolerate some light shade and requires moderate moisture levels. It is hardy in USDA zones 5-9 and is easy to care for, making it a popular choice for home gardeners looking for low-maintenance landscaping options.

'Morning Light' can be used in a variety of ways in the landscape, including as a specimen plant, a border or screen, or as part of a mixed perennial planting. It is also attractive in containers and can be used as a cut or dried flower. Its striking foliage and graceful habit make it a versatile and eye-catching addition to any garden.
