This strong growing perennial is a very striking variegated grass. This structural plant needs plenty of room as it can grow to 3 metres in height. The leaves are broad and attractively striped in white and green. Arundo prefers a sunny position. This architectural plant can be used as a bold backdrop or a garden feature, creating a striking bamboo effect. It makes a stunning subject when grown in a patio container.  Feathery pannicles of purplish flowers are produced in late summer. Can be cut back after two years once established to encourage flowering. Excellent for flower arrangements.
