An elegant ornamental grass with long, fine green leaves that are thinly edged in white.
Despite their delicate appearance, the leaves of the Morning Light can stand up to some of the strongest winds and storms that the British weather can throw at it. Likewise, as a plant that prefers the heat, it will not wilt or flop during the summer and may in fact surprise you with plumes of reddish brown flowers.
Ornamental Grasses are chosen for their decorative qualities and whether used indoors or outdoors, they can bring a striking diversity to your garden. From round shrubs to tall walls of quivering spikes, ornamental grasses bring new shapes and textures that will contrast against the twisted roots of trees and the blooms of traditional plants and flowers. They are also becoming increasingly popular due to their hardiness against the British weather and their ability to hold their colour through autumn and winter.
