WANTED: Seeking arundo donax var.

mattlward(z5 central IL)September 21, 2004

I would love to find some of this. I have some mature chinese silver reed grass, you know the kind that for me hits 13 feet tall and I could also spare some Miscanthus "Nippon". Nippon for me forms a nice toadstool that is about 4 feet tall.

Thanks Matt

Please be careful with this monser of a plant. If you freeze it is not a problem, but for us in the warmer states it is choking our creeks and streams. In my area of CA this plant can grow up to 1 foot a week and I have had people hacking 35 ft. stands of it down.

Just a word to the wise.

I would be interested in the Chinese silver reed grass and might have some arundo - but will be a couple weeks to determine as it can be difficult to transplant something small (easy to dig a big hunk of it - so have to see what sprouts this spring. It will not b e a problem for you up there - in good conditions will give you 12 to 15 feet. Down south, it can be a pain....
Write me if still need/want it and we will see what we can do :-)
