Saccharum ravennae


Availability : Available

Description :

One of the most beautiful and spectacular

Native to the Mediterranean basin, Sacharrum ravennae is synonymous with Erianthus ravennae and is also known as Ravennagrass or "Hardy Pampas Grass", because it is more resistant to the cold than Cortaderia selloana, the true pampas grass.

When mature, its rounded clumps produce late summer inflorescences on long, light stalks that can reach 4 metres in height.

We use it in the garden as a focus plant to structure large beds or as a landscape feature in a park. It remains attractive in the winter, so it is best to prune it at the end of winter before the before the new spring growth.

It is fairly undemanding in terms of soil, which can be dry or damp, but avoid planting it in rich soil, as too much nitrogen will be detrimental to the proper development of the floral stems. Hardiness: - 8°C.
