The very best in British grown plants

Arundo donax variegata

giant variegated reed


Description - 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. This versatile plant is as much at home in the margins of a pond, providing it is not planted too deep. We recommend no more that 5-10cm of water above the top of the pot.
