Synonym: Miscanthus sinensis var condensatus 'Cabaret'
Originally from Japan, the condensatus variety is represented in our garden by only two horticultural varieties: 'Cosmopolitan' and 'Cabaret'.
The leaves of one have a green central rib and white edges, whereas the other has a wide creamy-white central strip.
Miscanthus sinensis 'Cabaret' was discovered in Japan and introduced into the United States in 1976. It is very vigorous and, in optimal conditions, may grow taller than 250 cm with really impressive leaves more than three centimetres wide.
Miscanthus 'Cabaret' is an exceptional grass that we use in the garden as a focus plant for its remarkable architectural habit. In our opinion it is most effective planted on its own at the edge of a pond.
Grow in the sun or partial shade, sheltered from drying winds, in ordinary soil that is not too dry.
