Miscanthus Morning Light

Maiden Grass, Eulalia  

DiamondLawnCare(Miscanthus sinensis Morning Light)  


Wine colored stalks rise from delicate silver variegated foliage. Appreciated for its more rounded upright habit. Showy light plumes display a pink blush all fall and into the winter. Straw-beige winter foliage with plumes persisting to provide pleasing winter interest. Morning Light is a smaller, finer-textured Miscanthus when compared to Gracillimus. Picture-perfect with sunshine highlighting the silky plumes.  


Plant in an area with full to partial sun (4-8 hours of sunlight per day). Select a location with well-drained soil and dig a hole that’s large enough to accommodate your Maiden Grass root ball. After you’ve planted, mulch the surrounding area and water to settle the roots.  


Water weekly, or more often in extreme heat or drought. If you plant your Maiden Grass in containers, you’ll also want to water more frequently. Check the soil and water when soil is dry to the touch two inches down.  


Once established, you won’t need regular fertilization.  


Cut back your Maiden Grass in the winter to a height of about 6 inches, before new growth appears.
