Sometimes Mother Nature comes up with some great variations, as our Red Moutain Selection of Sugarcane Plumegrass demonstrates. John Hoffman found this selection off Red Mountain Road in the northern Piedmont of North Carolina. Its rosy panicles are showier and more deeply colored than other wild specimens we’ve seen, and it’s a bit smaller in stature. Impressive and dramatic, Erianthus giganteus makes its home in bogs, swales, and swamps in the eastern and southeastern US down to Central America. Fall transforms its foliage to yellows, reds, or bronze-purples, depending on environmental conditions. It prefers full sun and moist soil and does not tolerate drought and shade. Try this selection of Sugarcane Plumegrass for naturalistic and ornamental plantings. Taxonomists formerly classified this grass in the Saccharum genus, but now believe it belongs in Erianthus.
