Grass - Cabaret Maiden
The Grass 'Cabaret' Maiden, Miscanthus sinensis var. conden satus 'Cabaret', is one of the most outstanding new Miscanthus selections!
This plant tends to be a bit floppy and graceless in flower, but the foliage effect is grand! This outstanding grass has wide, ribbon-like foliage with a creamy white center and dark green margins.
The late season plumes emerge a wonderful coral pink to purple before changing to tan. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other garden plants with finer foliage.
This ornamental grass will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best cleaned up in early spring, before it resumes active growth for the season.
Grow in average to moist conditions; do not allow drying out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.
‘Cabaret' can be used in large containers but in cold areas the pots will need to be sunken during winter to protect the roots from freezing.
