Saccharum ravennae

WITHDRAWN This plant has been declared a noxious weed in at least nine (9) states as of 3/24/2015. It has self seeded in riparian areas and has become problematic in a broad number of places such as the Grand Canyon, most western states and areas of Pennsylvania. We grow Saccharum (Erianthus) ravennae in the Dry Border and the Point Garden where the drier conditions keep this grass upright. It is hard to believe that the early mound of broad bladed grass will send magnificent burgundy stems soaring sky-high by late summer. A superb centerpiece for a large border.

Late summer.  12 ft.

Sun     Zones 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
