Saccharum ravennae


Northern Pampas Grass

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 8.316.100


(Formerly Erianthus ravennae) A good substitute for the true Pampas Grass, which is not hardy in colder regions. This forms a medium-size clump of olive-green leaves at the base, giving rise to very tall stems of silvery-white plumes in autumn. Plants have excellent fall and winter interest, particularly when grown as a specimen surrounded by lower neighbours. Great for cutting, fresh or dried. Trim to the ground in early spring. Clumps may be divided in spring before new growth starts. Drought tolerant once established.
