Product Description

ORNAMENTAL GRASSES: Grasses provide structure and texture to your garden, offering many shapes, heights and colors. Most will “bloom’ with attractive seed fronds that move with the breeze. Arundo donax "Peppermint Stick' is a tall perennial reed, growing in moist areas. Other common names include Carrizo, Spanish cane, wild cane, giant cane and arundo. Its native range may have extended from the Mediterranean region through the Middle East to India, but it is now widely planted and naturalised in the temperate and subtropical regions of both hemispheres. It forms dense stands on disturbed sites, sand dunes, in wetlands and landscape habitats. It grows up to 12 feet tall. Overall, it resembles an outsize common reed (Phragmites australis) or a bamboo. Giant reed was probably first introduced into the United States at Los Angeles, California in the early 1800's. Since then, it has become widely dispersed into all of the subtropical and warm temperate areas of the world, mostly through intentional human introductions. Today, giant reed is widely planted throughout the warmer areas of the United States as an ornamental and in the Southwest, where it is used along ditches for erosion control. Giant reed has a variety of uses ranging from music to medicine. Primitive pipe organs were made from it and the reeds for woodwind instruments are still made from its culms, for which no satisfactory substitutes are known. It is also used in basketry, for fishing rods, livestock fodder, medicine, soil erosion control or a bold landscape plant!
