Hardy sugar cane (Saccharum arundinaceum), 1, Bluestone Perennials, spring 2012
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.
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.
