Common Name Sugar Cane Plume Grass Variety  
Regional Names Erianthus giganteus
Botanical Name Saccharum giganteum
Description Saccharum giganteum has large plumes that develop in summer and will persist into late winter. The plums reach a height of 6 to 8' at maturity. Clump forming perennial grass, grows best in moist sunny locations, but will do well in just about any location with lots of sun. This native grass is the host plant for the Clouded Skipper Butterfly. A better choice over the abrasive Pampas Grass and truly stunning when planted in mass.
