Giant Reed

The striking variegation of the evergreen giant reed makes it a popular choice, although it is less vigorous and less hardy than the green form. In cold areas, plant it in a pot so you can enjoy it outdoors in summer, then bring it under cover for the winter. Giant reed will grow to 7 feet tall and 6 feet wide in ideal growing conditions: full or partial sun and moist or wet soil.
