More Information About Saccharum
Saccharum is a genus of tall ornamental grass plants that includes sugar cane and giant pampas grass. Many saccharum species are tall ornamental grasses that often top out at over 10'...a dramatic statement in the garden. Most saccharum are ideally suited for use as a specimen plant but also have utility in the back of the garden border or as a screen.
In addition to the long arching blades of grass, Saccharum species have beautiful and often colorful seed heads over a long period of time starting in fall. They also make great cut flower specimens. Saccharum, like most perennial ornamental grasses, prefers full sun and are quite drought-tolerant, while growing in a wide range of soils. Saccharum looks great when paired with buddleia, canna, hedychium and other large, bold textured garden plants.
Perennial ornamental grasses are real work-horses in the garden. They are tough, easy to grow, and provide an attractive vertical or arching structure useful in garden design. When you are ready to buy ornamental grass for your garden, check out our selection of saccharum for sale.
