ARUNDO or GIANT REED

P. These are ornamental grasses suitable for planting by the waterside. Like the bamboos, they must have moist, almost boggy, soil and it is useless attempting to grow them if this cannot be provided. Arundo donax grows to about 10 ft. with brownish-white flowers in September and handsome grey-green leaves. In cold localities it should be protected during winter with a covering of leaves.
