SKU: ADV-1 Categories: , , ,


Arundo donax variegata is a tall grass with wide leaves that are 2 to 3 inches wide. It is often considered a great substitute for bamboo. Once mature the plants can reach 10 to 12 feet with a large showy bloom at the end of summer. This form emerges almost totally white in spring and as summer progresses becomes more lime green to yellow and fades to a light green by very late summer.


Plants can grow in soil to bog situations and will form a large clump with age. A great addition for people wanting a tropical look in cooler climates. Plants can handle zone 5 and higher.
