Item added to cart!

Morning Light Maiden Grass is a late-blooming variegated ornamental grass that forms dense clumps of narrow arching grass-like foliage.  The narrow foliage is light green with white margins giving it an overall silver appearance and turns straw-beige by winter.  Airy tassel-like copper-red plumes bloom above the foliage in late summer and gradually mature to silvery white and persist into winter. Best color in full sun and moist well-drained soil.  Aggressive enough to be invasive in milder climates.
