    I'm looking for anybody in Canada who has a very tall species of grass named either Saccharum arundinaceum or Saccharum procerum or Erianthus procerus - depending on who is naming it. It is supposed to be cold-tolerant to plant zone 6.

    These nurseries call it "Saccharum arundinaceum":
    Bluestone Perennials ( ) and Plant Delights ( ) carry it in the USA.

    This is not Miscanthus giganteus, nor is it the plant variously named Saccharum ravennae or Erianthus ravennae or Ripidium ravennae. I have these in my garden already.
