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 yellow, white and green. Feathery pannicles of buff flowers are produced in late summer; popular for flower arrangements. 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.
