Phragmites australis (common reed; Giant reed; Cane; Ditch reed; Giant reedgrass; Phragmites; Reed grass; Roseau; Roseau cane; Yellow cane)

Synonyms: Arundo australis

Wikipedia Abstract

Phragmites, the common reed, is a large perennial grass found in wetlands throughout temperate and tropical regions of the world. Phragmites australis is sometimes regarded as the sole species of the genus Phragmites, though some botanists divide Phragmites australis into three or four species.

Invasive Species

Phragmites australis grows on level ground in tidal and non-tidal marshes, lakes, swales and backwater areas of rivers and streams. It is found on sites that are seasonally flooded with not more than 50cm of water. It grows on most soil textures from fine clay to sandy loams and is somewhat tolerant of saline or alkaline conditions. Phragmites australis is especially common along railroad tracks, roadside ditches and piles of dredge spoil, wherever slight depressions will hold water. Throughout most of its range, it typically forms closed mono-dominant stands in both disturbed and pristine areas. It is capable of vigorous vegetative reproduction and its seeds, which are normally dispersed by wind, may be transported by birds that nest among the reeds. The seeds are also dispersed by water. Newly opened sites may be colonised by seed or by rhizome fragments carried to the area in soils and on machinery or naturally in floodwaters. Invasion and continued spread is aided by disturbances or stresses such as pollution, alteration of the natural hydrologic regime, dredging and increased sedimentation. In coastal marshes, spread of Phragmites australis is also facilitated by natural disturbance caused by tidal movements of dead vegetation.

Usage [2]  The common reed can provide a large quantity of biomass and this is used in a wide variety of ways as listed below. Annual yields of 40 - 63 tonnes per hectare have been reported; The plant is also converted into alcohol (for use as a fuel), is burnt as a fuel and is made into fertilizer; The plant is rich in pentosans and may be used for the production of furfural - the nodes and sheaths yield 6.6% whilst the underground parts over 13% of furfural; The pentosan content increases throughout the growing period and is maximum in the mature reed; The reed can be used also for the preparation of absolute alcohol, feed yeast and lactic acid; The stems are useful in the production of homogeneous boards; They can also be processed into a fine fibrous material suitable as a filler in upholstery; The stems have many uses. They are used for thatching roofs; It can last for 100 years; The stems and leaves are also used for building dwellings, lattices, fences, arrows by Indians, and for weaving mats, carrying nets, basket making, insulation, fuel, as a cork substitute etc; The stem contains over 50 percent cellulose and is useful in the manufacture of pulps for rayon and paper; The fibre from the leaves and stems is used for making paper; The fibre is 0.8 - 3.0 mm long and 5.0 - 30.5µm in diameter. The stems and leaves are harvested in the summer, cut into usable pieces and soaked for 24 hours in clear water. They are then cooked for 2 hours with lye and beaten in a blender. The fibre makes a khaki paper; A fibre obtained from the plant is used for making string; The flowering stalks yield a fibre suitable for rope making; The leaves are used in basket making and for weaving mats etc; A light green dye is obtained from the flowers; Freshly cut shoots are a good green manure[74] (Does this man as a soil mulch?[K]). The inflorescences are used as brooms; The plant can be used as a cork substitute; No further details. The plant is mixed with mud to make a plaster for walls; Pens for writing on parchment were cut and fashioned from the thin stems of this reed; The plant has a very vigorous and running rootstock, it is useful for binding the soil along the sides of streams etc; It is planted for flood control since it stablizes the banks and gradually builds up soil depth, thus raising the level of the bank.
