Hardy sugar cane (Saccharum arundinaceum)
Flowers Panicl, High Teen
Saccharum arundinaceum (hardy sugar cane) - sun/ls, moist soil, 10-15'x10-15'; blooms oct-nov, z6-11, turns brown w/ frost but won't die until high teens.
Saccharum arundinaceum. This Hardy Sugar Cane will perform well down to zone 6! The handsome gray-green foliage resists lodging (never faltered even when hurricane winds blew through!) and provides a wonderful tropical feel and vertical accent to the garden. The effect is heightened in fall when flower panicles are produced on densely packed stalks and tower to as much as 15'. The plumes begin as soft pink, open to silver, and look great through the winter.

One tropical-looking hardy plant I'm psyched to try this year is 'Mekong Giant' banana (Musa intinerans var. xishuangbannaensis 'Mekong Giant'). It's said to be hardy from zone 6 all the way to zone 11. More important, it's rumored grow to 15 feet tall in a single zone 6 growing season. In warmer zones? Up to 40 feet. by Plants Nouveau, LLC
