This a magnificent stripped sugarcane.  Its both edible and ornamental.  Its one of our favorite new varieties.  This sugarcane native to Java and surrounding areas and was brought to the US by dutch trades via the West Indies. We got our mother from GreenPlanet in Florida, check out their amazing collection.

You want it and we got it! Grow your own sugar and ween yourself off that high fructose corn syrup poison! Sugarcane is a beautiful tall grass that can reach over 8 ft tall. It is hardy to zone 8b and can tolerate wet conditions. Once established you can root new plants from mature can stalks to grow your sugar stash! Great addition to a greywater system (as sugarcane will thrive under wet conditions). This plant will set your perennial food forest apart!

The cane can be peeled and eaten or pressed for juice that can be cooked or dried to give you a non white sugar full of minerals. Get off that white stuff and grow your own! Minimum put size is 6" and plant is well established.
