Key to Arundinaria

A genus of 4 species, woody grasses (bamboos), native of (endemic to) se. United States. Arundinaria was much reduced by the foraging of free-range livestock in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and by fire suppression in the late nineteenth century and throughout the twentieth century. "Canebrakes," large areas dominated by cane (with or without an open canopy), were described in many historical accounts and apparently occupied significant area in the landscape of the Coastal Plain, also occurring in the Piedmont and low Mountains.
