    I know I could have easily divided some off the main plant but being one to try something different I tried rooting some stem cuttings from my variegated Arundo donax. I took 5 cuttings around November time and 3 have successfully rooted and are now growing on well :)

        I rooted some a few years ago by cutting it off and just putting it in the pond.
