Pink Flowers on Variegated Grass

Grass - Variegated Feather Reed, Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Overdam', displays white and green leaves, and its smaller size makes it more refined than 'Karl Forester'.

In some ways, it is even more pleasing than its big brother, Karl. It has medium blade width and flowers in June through July. It will most likely remain upright throughout the winter.

Variegated Feather Reed does well in heavy clay soils, unlike many of the other ornamental grasses. With ample moisture it will do well in full sun, but likes a little shade in hot climates.

It provides an excellent vertical accent for borders and for narrow spaces in the landscape. It is also effective in moist low spots or on pond/stream banks. Variegated Feather Reed works well as a specimen, or incorporated into a border and makes a good low screen, especially in somewhat shady areas.

Use as a backdrop for roses and other perennials. It should be cut back in early spring, just before the new growth starts. Create your own dried arrangement, because this grass does make a wonderful display for your favorite vase or basket!
