lime grass?

I am trying to ID a plant someone called lime grass. In summer it grows 10 - 12 feet high; the general structure is very similar to a cornstalk. I though this might be Phalaris arundinea var. picta (ribbon grass) but that plant is quite a bit smaller. It's variegated very much like that plant, though Any ideas?

Could it be Arundo donax 'variegata'?

Here is a link that might be useful: Arundo pics & info....

RE: lime grass?

There are a few Lymegrass cultivars (Leymus arenarius) but I cannot think of any that are variegated. I've never seen any that tall, either. I'm guessing that Nelson is absolutely correct, giant variegated reedgrass.
