Can I collect seed from this plant and will it be true to the parent plant?

Hi, Mez,
From what I can gather, 'Malepartus' is one of the Miscanthus cultivars that is sterile. Even if it did set viable seed, it most likely would not come true to type.

Thanks Kathy, I did have a look around and saw that too. Might give it a go though and see what happens.
