NOT River Cane, but still a cane break ... © All Rights Reserved

This may be Arundinaria gigantea.

Oops, was mistaken. I am told by very reliable sources that this is an invasive species of Bamboo!

Wow! I've heard of these "cane breaks" but have never seen anything like this. Amazing photo, thank you so much! It's the local details that are the most interesting to me; Things you locals see all the time and think are too boring to take pictures of!

The 'jungle' of North Carolina. I agree with Nawitka. I didn't know about this kind of flora, but it's beautiful.

Frank Knaap on March 4, 2009

You showed already some of the Cane breaks, BUT THIS.......WOW Jean........a BEAUTY!

For the rest, see Nawitka's comment.

nice green wall :)

Jean Gregory Evans on March 4, 2009

Nawitka, thank you. The leaning cane is still leaning. I took another photo last year in warm weather and it pretty much looks the same now, even after all this time!

Norrel, thank you. The river cane is in the Bamboo family but is small compared to what Frank Knaap has in his garden.

Frank, if you click on the river cane link beside this photo, you can see the photo of the same cane last summer. The same cane is still leaning just like it did back then!

Hanz, thank you. There is not much green here now, everything is gray but we expect Spring in just a few days.

Thank you all for your nice comments!

Sorry I missed the link Jean, at the thumbnail it looks like a WATERFALL and I was too impressed. :)
