Maidencane is a 6-foot tall grass, often seen along Florida’s roadsides, or in water. It is common in the Everglades, often found in association with sawgrass and pickerel weed.
This grass spreads via rhizomes and has been known to invade gardens by way of roadside ditches. Maidencane rhizomes move underground least two feet deep, and the best way to contain this grass is with underground barriers.
