Saccharum officinarum var. violaceum. Purple Sugar Cane
Tall purple grass, overwinter same as Brugmansia/Ensete or possibly cut down and protect in the garden.
3 litre pots. A stunning purple grass producing strong canes. Little known as yet about how large it might grow but for sure 6 feet perhaps much more. Once considered very tender it is easily overwintered under cover a little above 0c here at about 4c last year with ensete in the store. May overwinter under an upturned pot or bucket in areas of light frost but I am not experimenting with it much at this time. Will be cut down to approx 45cm to fit box for posting.
