Saccharum officinarum 'Asian Red'
This selection of sugarcane has attractive dark red stems. Sugar can be extracted from the stems as with typical sugarcane. However, it also makes an excellent ornamental in the garden. It rapidly forms a clump of tall stems up to 10 ft long with long narrow arching leaves. It needs full sun and supplemental water in dry periods to thrive. (Pot size: 3 gallon)
