Plants

Arundo donax Recent winters (including that of 2009) have not hurt this tropical Bamboo look -alike. Dramatic stems with a distinct similarity to Sugar cane bear blue green leaves. Likes moisture & looks wonderful in a pot for patio plantings. It is also the plant used to provide oboe reeds. Makes lovely swishing noises in gentle winds as the leaves brush each other but in stronger winds the leaves go horizontal & are quiet; The Arabs say; 'It whispers in the breeze & is silent in the storm'.
