From a 1976 visit by Skip March and John Creech to Dr. Yokoi's (Mr. Variegated) garden in Japan comes this spectacular variegated miscanthus. The foliage is extremely narrow, with vertical bands of white and green. Upon unfurling, the plumes are crimson-red but later change to a soft tan color. Miscanthus 'Morning Light' is a great plant for smaller gardens...simply outstanding!
