Mediterranean Plants on Middle Bass Island

Taken Memorial Day Weekend
Arundo donax is a fast-growing perennial cane we have here at St. Hazards.

These pictures, taken by owner Ed, show just how fast Arundo donax grows. The first picture was taken Memorial Day Weekend and the second two weeks later.
Taken Two Weeks Later
Also referred to as Giant Cane, the Arundo donax is from the Mediterranean. It's one of the many tropical plants growing at St. Hazards throughout the summer.

The variety of tropical plants adds to the natural beauty of Middle Bass Island, and helps to create a unique island atmosphere you won't find anywhere else.
