Ravennagrass


Saccharum ravennae

Ravennagrass

A regal grass that can hit 12 feet, ravennagrass is ravishing. Place it carefully in the landscape, realizing that it will visually dominate whatever space it's planted in and that it needs plenty of room to grow.

Previously called Erianthus ravennae, it is also sometimes called plume grass or hardy pampas grass. It grows best in lean soil with little water once it becomes established.
