DescriptionThe common name for this plant is reed grass, or in arabic, ghab. Its area of distribution ranges from alaska and australia to the balkans. Phragmites is a perennial grass which is both heat and frost-tolerant. It grows to a height of between 90 cm and 2.5 Metres. It is a fast-growing grass with strong rhizomes. It can be invasive in situations where all conditions are optimal for its development. It can also withstand high salinity. The flowers appear as impressive florets between 20 and 35 cm in size. The spike has a violet magenta colour. The inflorescence appears in early september and remains on the plant for a long time, keeping the grass attractive throughout the winter. Reed grass grows close to water edges, on shorelines. Phragmites is well known in the wadi hanifah and the al hair lakes. Because it is such a strong plant, its use is not advisable for small ponds. It helps to maintain the natural water ecosystem in equilibrium. Reed grass is a phytoremediation or water-treatment plant, and provides a habitat for many different varieties of wildlife. Accordingly, phragmites is a useful plant for bank stabilisation, open country and environmental consolidation. It can also be used as screen. It becomes a dominant plant very quickly. Recommended propagation measures are by runners, division and direct sowing. Maintenance is recommended through periodically pruning where necessary. Buy More visit
