Grass - Feather Reed

Cool Weather Grass with June Flowers


The Grass 'Feather Reed Grass', Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster', is a 7' tall 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 tan wheat color that lasts through the fall.


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.


* Grows Best in Cool Season
* ShinyDark Green Foliage
* Early Erect Pink Plumes

Ornamental grass Review by Sheri
Rating
This is our first year with the grass. We planted it in the fall of 2006 so we are anxiously awaiting to see how it matures! However, we have a question, please. Should we cut it back this Spring? Or, leave it? Please reply.

<p><strong><font size=1>Answer from Nature Hills:</strong> Cut it back late winter, early spring, we cut ours back last week and it already has new green shoots growing.
