A majestic, perennial native of the Camargue, a huge, marshy river delta in south France. Arundo donax is a tall plant, growing into an imposing, elegant stand many dwarfs many species of bamboo. The stem material is both flexible and strong enough to be used as a reed for woodwind instruments such as the oboe, bassoon and clarinet.
