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.

Most importantly, uprooting is best done during early spring and winter.
