There is some debate whether 'Giganteus' is a species or a hybrid. What is known is that it is a spectacular addition to the landscape. This plant evokes the tropics . Tall bamboo-like culms, clothed in broad green blades rise to impressive heights in a single season, and remain standing through the winter. Long,hot summers that extend into autumn may see silvery plumes emerge into the sky.
