Miscanthus Cabaret is perfect for adding textural interest to your garden landscape. Plant in mass for an attractive screening or stands alone as a remarkable focal point.

Cut foliage back in late winter before new shoots appear. Divide in late spring when needed. Shear back foliage, divide clumps with a sharp spade and discard woody centers.
