So I Googled: "What looks like pampas grass and bamboo, but is not." Well, San Geraldo was right (imagine that).
|NOT BAMBOO, NOR PAMPAS GRASS.|
The scientific name is Arundo donax (click here if you'd like to learn about it — for next week's exam), but a couple of its common names are Giant Cane or Spanish Cane. It's native to the Mediterranean. Until yesterday evening we had a 'Giant Giant Cane' mountain across the street. Crews worked for more than 12 hours to pile it all up and then load and haul away several truckloads. There were mounds of the cane all along the beaches of Fuengirola. A huge job.

Thanks to a recent comment by Walt (click here for his blog called "wcs"),
I felt inspired to include this video.
(In other words, blame Walt.)
