Setaria palmifolia

31st August 2013

A broad leaved tropical grass that will grow to 2m in a suitable climate - it has only managed a quarter of that here. I grow it in the greenhouse and it just survives (so far). It gets damaged in winter but recovers slowly as temperatures rise.
I was told that it will seed about and I am a little nervous of introducing another weed into the greenhouse but I think I have overestimated the risk.
