    this looks so amazing, I love the shape and color. ❤️☺️

    It’s lovely, albeit unfamiliar. I learned it’s an Asian grass, and this cultivar is gorgeous. It reminds me of our native silver bluestem, which isn’t so full, but which can be equally appealing when backlit.

  3. The lighting is beautiful. I believe it survives in winter too?…

  4. Beautiful! So luminous and ethereal. Never used to have it in Maine, but it has come north.

  5. Dawn Minott says:

    Whimsical. Love it 😍

    How stunning Eliza!

  7. Joanne says:

    Absolutely beautiful. ❤
    I love the contrast of light and dark in the photo too, it gives the miscanthus quite a dramatic appearance.

    You’ve captured its beauty, Eliza. Both the lighting and the textural detail are perfect.

  10. Anne says:

    You have caught it gleamingly well.

  11. Cathy says:

    Beautiful! Mine haven’t flowered well this year at all.

    So beautiful Eliza, I love the way they catch the light 💛

  13. Alice says:

    So feathery and detailed. The history of acquiring plants is good to remember.

  14. I love grasses, but I don’t have any. My tall ones became too much to divide and I needed to share with younger gardeners with stronger backs. My short ones got beat up by the snow blower deposits. So, I’m left to ooh and aah over other gardens, and this one definitely deserves both.

  15. Love it! Up until 4 years ago all I had was grass to mow, after adding so many varieties here not sure how I did without them.

  16. Feathery and shimmering, how lovely the light!

  17. Pepper says:

    Great job capturing a gorgeous display of light. 😊👏

    Wonderful shot! You should print it out and have it framed.

  19. Such soft details. I really like grasses. They give such great dimensions to the gardenscape. Easy to care for and tells the weeds who is the boss! Great photo!

  20. Debbie says:

    What a great photo of a lovely plant! It shimmers in the sun … like aluminum foil!

  21. Robin says:

    Beautiful light and texture, Eliza. 🙂

  23. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Love the way it captures the light

  24. Very nice Eliza! Great detail!

  25. Nice capture of the light, Eliza. We love our Miscanthus.

  26. Wonderful autumnal light. I had these in my Atlanta garden, so pretty.

  27. Beautiful capture and lighting!🙂

    Gorgeous – one of my favourites.

  29. Jane Lurie says:

    Stunning backlit beauties, Eliza! 😍👏🏻

  30. Dale says:

    Is that what that is called? I had no idea. I love taking these in the beautiful sunlight, too. Gorgeous photo, Eliza.

  31. Vicki says:

    So is that what it’s called? There are lots of this grass beside the ponds in the nature reserve and lining the edges of the canal.
    Lovely shot with the sun on it.

  32. nshami14 says:

    This kinda looks like the grass that would be in a Dr. Seuss book. Rare and wickedly lovely.

  33. A beautiful subject for back-lighting … awesome capture Eliza!
