Karl Foerster Reed grass (Calamagrostis acutiflora) Zone 5-10.
Blooms in early summer with feather plumes and ripens to a wheat colored seed head by fall. Adapts well to any soil. Plant in full sun for best results. Great winter interest if left uncut. Cut back in early spring when new growth begins to show.
Love them near a water feature or aspen trees. Plant with Moonshine yarrow, catmint, or Blue mist spirea.
