This decorative grass produces magnificent feather plumes of wheat-colored seed heads that bloom in late spring and then decorate the landscape through winter. Its attractive, vertical clumping habit makes it ideal for use as a screen, accent plant or backdrop for other perennials. Lengthily stalks make a delightful cut-flower arrangement—It's easy to see why it received the Perennial Plant of the Year award! Feather Reed Grass ships established in its own container.
