(Giant Reed Grass)Arundo 'Golden Chain' adds vertical interest to your perennial landscape! The foliage of 'Golden Chain' is a bright golden shade of yellow with a thick green stripe down the center. The intense coloration of this Arundo grass lasts all summer. 'Golden Chain' is a less aggressive species in the Arundo family reaching 5-6' tall (in the north) and 7' tall in the south, making this a great choice for the modern garden. In the south where your growing season is longer, showy plumes of copper will emerge mid to late fall. 'Golden Chain' Arundo Grass is great for use in a bog as it can withstand wet feet or is adaptable to dry locations. Use in mass plantings, specimens, or as a border grass.
