Saccharum Ravennae Plume Grass, Ravenna Grass
A large plant with beautiful plumes, forms a medium-size clump of olive-green leaves at the base, giving rise to very tall stems of silvery-white plumes in autumn. Similar in appearance to the less hardy Pampas Grass. Plants have excellent fall and winter interest, particularly when grown as a specimen surrounded by shorter plants. Good for privacy screening or to block views.
Prefers full sun in dry to medium-moist soils. Tolerant to drought and air pollution.
