General Information +

Botanical: Miscanthus sinensis var. Condensatus 'Cabaret'

Common: Cabaret miscanthus

Family: Poaceae

General Characteristics: Cream white center with wide dark green margins; individual stems may revert to green; does not self seed. Flowers stems pinkish-white in late September. Form/Texture is sturdy upright. Ornamental Grasses are gaining in popularity all over the U.S. due to their undemanding nature and long lasting, year round beauty. There is nothing that adds such interesting forms, textures and movement to a garden, than with this diverse plant group. They can be planted along banks of ponds, incorporated into perennial gardens, grouped together, utilized as a ground cover along walkways, paths or on steep banks. They aren't fussy about soil requirements, are drought tolerant as well as insect and disease resistant.

Tip: Grows in a variety of soil types but prefers well drained soil. Trim to the ground in late winter or early spring. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth appears.

Use: Useful as a specimen grass, a garden accent, in mass plantings, cut for fresh flower bouquets, and is even remarkable as a container plant. Combine this with other showstoppers like our dark leafed cannas.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: Deer & Rabbit Resistant. No serious insect or disease problems.

Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to hold the roots. Fill the hole with water and position the plant so the crown (where the root meets the stem) is just slightly below the soil line. Fill the hole with soil and water again. A slow release fertilizer may be used each spring, though it's not necessary.
