Giant Chinese reed, also known as elephant grass, is one of the sweet grasses, as is bamboo. With a height of up to four meters, it also reaches a considerable size. In a small terraced house garden there is hardly any space for this giant.

Elephant grass grows up to 5cm per day

Can I stem the growth of Giant Chinese Reed?

You can hardly influence the daily growth of up to five centimeters with appropriate care, nor the maximum height. But you can do something to prevent elephant grass from spreading throughout your garden. Thanks to strong rhizomes, it likes to do that. Be sure to put a root barrier in the ground when planting.

The essentials in brief:

  • daily growth of up to 5 cm
  • maximum size: up to 4 m high and 2.5 m wide
  • Root depth: up to 2 m possible

tips
