Maidencane, The Choice of Gardeners
 
The maidencane is the choice for gardeners when the soil is difficult for most plants to grow. It readily grows and requires little care. It is often the choice for waterline near lakes, and other moist sites. It tolerates any soil PH. Consistently soggy, muddy areas in fields are a perfect fit to grow these plants. It’s popular with cattle and deer, as well as other species of wild life.

Blue Maidencane, as with all the species of Maidencanes, grow in, or near freshwater in the lower southeastern United States. The blue-green variety grows primarily in the areas of Florida and Georgia and is described as a medium herbaceous grass. It has long spear-like leaves with thin white hyaline margins. It flowers in the fall. The above ground flowers on up to twelve inch spikes and the majority are sterile, while the fertile flowers are borne underground on slender branches. They grow to three to six feet high and spread by horizontal roots/stems (Stolons) forming large patches of plants. The aquatic versions may reach eight feet in height. 

In pond and other freshwater spots, the submerged portions provide habitats for micro and macro invertebrates, which in turn are food for fish and other wildlife species including ducks.

Florida’s maidencane was singled out by Brooksville PMC Technical Advisory Committee, as filling one of the critical needs for native revegetation efforts in the state.
