Arundo donax

Wildflowers Monocots Poales Poaceae Arundo

Giant Reed (Arundo). From the Mediterranean.

This has colonized most of our streams, especially near the ocean (but can be found all the way to the headwaters of Hot Springs creek). Almost always found on or near the banks of a stream. After a winter storm whole plants can be found on the beaches where they can sometimes take root.

An extremely tall plant.
