    Posted by Alexander on May 05 , 2016

    This plant arrived in great condition. It had 1 stalk that I eventually clipped as it was bent. It was smaller than I thought, but healthy! I've had it for 5 months now, and it's doing well.

Description

River Cane Plant - Arundinaria gigantea is also Called Giant Cane or American Bamboo

River Cane Plant is a consistently green plant that maintains its color all year round. As the name suggests, it is often found growing natively along riverbanks but has an adaptation to most soils. The River Cane Plant grows in groups of colonies, thickets or vast canebrakes. It is not uncommon to spot a native thicket under trees along a river. The green stems are coarse in feel, hollow inside and round.Its leaves have a maximum length of 11.7 inches and a width of 2cm to 4cm. River Cane’s flowers have panicle and raceme formations and exhibit short spikes.

River Cane Plant planted at home will mature well in loamy soil with good drainage, as clay soil is bound to retain excess water that eventually drowns the plant. It is vital for one seeking to replant this native plant to uproot it with its culms, rhizomes, and roots, and still retain a massive chunk of its original soil. Most importantly, uprooting is best done during early spring and winter.

River Cane can be great solution for a privacy screen or hedge, with heights exceeding residential fencing. You'll need to take some extra steps during planting to keep it contained. If you don't, you'll will be battling unwanted shoots...
