Enjoy Year Round Interest with 'Motion Grass'

Sometimes called “motion grass”, Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass provides vertical definition to your landscape, as well as drawing the eye with its tendency to sway in the slightest breeze. 

Its glossy leaf blades of a vibrant, deep green shoot up 2-3 feet from the ground, returning to its tall, straight shape even after affected by heavy rain or winds.  In June, 5-foot stems rise above the foliage to display feathery plumes with an airy, light pink hue.  The affect is stunning in any landscape! 

As the seed heads mature, they transition to shades of tan that persist through fall and can even provide delimitation into the winter months (as well as provide a tasty treat for your feathered friends).

Your Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass will grow up to 5 feet tall with an 18-inch spread.  It has an upright nature, is fast growing and very easy to grow.  Karl Foerster is deciduous where winters are cold, and semi-evergreen in mild climates.  It prefers a sunny (or part shade), location with regular rainfall, but is adaptable to a variety of soils and conditions.  Karl Foerster will not self-seed, so you don’t have to worry about it becoming invasive as with some other grasses. 

It’s easy to see why Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass was once named “Perennial of the Year”.  With its perpetual motion, enchanting plumes and lively color, Karl Foerster is sure to keep you entertained throughout the seasons. Order yours today!
