Feather Reed Grass

Description from Nature Hills Nursery

The Grass 'Feather Reed Grass', Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster', is a beautiful upright grass. 'Karl Forester' is a cool season grower with dark green, shiny foliage that appears in early spring and lasts until late fall. The flowers appear in June – earlier than many other ornamental grasses. At first they are loose, feathery and pinkish in color, then, through the summer, they become very narrow, gradually turning a wheaten color that lasts through the fall. The flower stems grow bolt upright and stand up beautifully through summer and winter.

It grows best in moist, well-drained fertile soil, and does well in moist heavy clay soil. This is a cool-season grass, which allows planting or transplanting in spring or fall. It truly has year-round beauty.
