(STRIPED GIANT REED) Big, bold and bodacious…this bomba looks like bamboo (but isn’t). A commanding 12-15’ tall and clumping (NOT running) to 8-10’ wide ensures that this is no shrinking violet…seriously though, with its cream variegated leaves, this is a beautiful plant at pond’s edge, as a specimen for a tropical touch, or to screen off the nudist that lives next door (dies back in cold winters, but too cold to run naked!). Needs sun or light shade, any soil dry or wet, deer resistant, easy. Not invasive like it’s green kin!
