Grass - Feather Reed
5'-7' of Green
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.
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.
