Sweet Taste Of Spring
Monday, April 4
Did you know that little packet of sugar you use each day comes from a kind of grass? A grass that grow up to nineteen feet high? Though it can grow quite tall and thick as well, sugar cane is still considered a grass.
Ribbon cane syrup used to be made in the south years back from a special kind of sugar cane. It was boiled down similarly to how maple syrup is made up north. Growing sugar cane takes a warm, wet climate. If you have a wet area where you'd like a tall plant that makes a landscaping statement, try sugar cane plume grass in our mail order catalog.
