From Japan, via the US National Arboretum, Miscanthus 'Cosmopolitan' has become recognized as one of the best variegated miscanthus. It has a wider leaf than most and very wide, vertical white striping throughout the leaf. The deer-resistant growth habit is similar to Miscanthus 'Cabaret' (non-floppy), and quite different from the other Miscanthus sinensis types.
