Sugar Cane (Saccharum officinarum)

Widely cultivated on a mass scale commercially, the long, thick stems are harvested for their sweet sap, which is most commonly used to make sugar and molasses.

Sugarcane is a member of the grass family, Poaceae. Native to southern Asia. Sugarcane has been cultivated for about 2000 years but it wasn’t until the 18th century that it was in cultivation in the USA. Sugar production was and still is very important to many countries. It is also being used now as a bio fuel.

Sugarcane makes an attractive exotic-looking plant within your sub-tropical landscape. Ideal for a shelter-belt.

Exposing the green, purple yellowish stems as they mature creates a dramatic feature in any garden.
