From the garden of plant collector Jim Waddick comes the hardiest and most spectacular of the sugar canes...little known in the US except by our customers, who all rave about it (some on general principle). Saccharum arundinaceum has long, grey-green leaves with a white midrib. This giant clumper (great for hiding obtrusive neighbors or rusty cars) makes a spectacular sight at 10' tall x 10' wide. In early to mid-October, the clumps are topped with narrow, purplish-pink, pampas-like plumes that extend another 2-3' above the foliage. Because of the late flowering season, seedlings are not a problem from Zone 7b north. Truly a must for grass lovers!
