This introduction from English nurseryman Peter Catt is similar in color to C. s. 'Silver Stripe', but the foliage reaches 6'+ tall, and the base of the clump has a nice purple cast. The striking white and green striped leaves make a stunning backdrop to the summer-borne plumes that perch 2' above the clump.
