Calamagrostis x a. 'Karl Foerster'

Feather Reed Grass

While the 18–24" foliage grows in a handsome, arching clump, it is the tall, slender upright flower spikes that distinguish this grass. The graceful golden spikes rise 4–5' above the foliage in May and June, and persist well into the winter. The only difference between 'Karl Foerster' and the stricta is that in colder climates 'Karl Foerster' grows more compactly and blooms 2 to 3 weeks earlier. Feather Reed Grass will tolerate some shade, but prefers moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Try it with Fountain Grasses for a classic combination. Like the species, 'Karl Foerster' works well with a myriad of woodies, perennials, and other grasses.
