Mauritania Vine Reed Rope Grass Ampelodesmos Mauritanicus is an evergreen perennial grass native to Mediterranean region and North Africa. Mauritania Vine Reed Rope seeds can be started in a green house in winter or early spring, and the seedling can be transplanted outdoors in late spring or early summer after the last expected frosts. Also commonly known as Mauritanian Grass, Mauritanian Broomgrass, Moroccan Grass, Diss Grass, and Dis Grass, Ampelodesmos Mauritanicus forms a stupendous, large clump of large, one-sided, brown panicles which hang from striking, sturdy upright stems that rise up from a non-spreading dense mound of tough, leathery, fine-textured green leaves. Mauritanian Grass is very similar to Pampas Grass, and the long-lived, evergreen specimen blooms through summer and fall remaining attractive all winter long.
