(Ravenna Grass) Erianthus ravennae is also known as 'Hardy Pampas Grass' due to the huge plumes that resemble its Southern cousins. By late summer, the plumes begin to shoot skyward and provide movement in the garden with just the slightest breeze. With foliage that reaches 5 feet tall and plumes that tower to 8-12 feet, Erianthus ravennae is an ideal grass to make a living windbreak or screen. It also provides excellent winter interest in the landscape. Erianthus ravennae is very hardy and prefers to be planted in a sunny location that is moist but well drained. Trim the foliage back in the spring before the new growth begins.
