Plant Features

Ravenna Saccharum Grass Plants produce one of the largest and most striking ornamental grasses. Its arching style with 8-10-foot-tall vertical plumes on hardy stems is easily recognizable, much prized and easy to grow. Grayish-green blades change to shades of tan, purple and beige as the summer season turns to fall. The plumes bloom silvery with a hint of purple at the top, fading to white in the fall.

Great Grass

As always the plants I receive from GrowJoy are healthy and beautiful!

Ravenna Saccharum Ornamental Grass

I received my order in good condition and when promised. The plants are a good size, and I am anxious to see how quickly they will grow to their mature height as well as the fall colors they will bring.

Love Ravenna Grass

I actually ordered these Erianthus grass plants last year. About 50 or so. We have a pool in the backyard and I wanted ornamental grass for privacy. Joe S. recommended these to me. They grow beautiful plumes and they sway gently in the breeze and gives us privacy. Love this plant. I actually just ordered 50 or so again this past week.

I love this plant. It's growing very fast. I planted mine on a bank so it has lots of room to get nice & tall. it gets part sun. Zone 9
