Arundo donax is easily grown in full sun to light shade in a wide variety of soils ranging from light sandy ones to heavy clays. Giant reed is a perennial, warm season grass that sports a somewhat tropical appearance.  In mature form, it can make a very bold ornamental statement in the landscape.  Giant reed is best grown as a specimen or accent for border backgrounds or near water bodies.  It may be used in large water gardens or along ponds.  Young plants can be effectively used as container specimens.  Inflorescences are attractive as cut flowers or for dried arrangements.  Woodwind instrument reeds are made from stems of this plant.
