Product Description

These soft, wispy stalks sway in breezes, bringing an exceptionally graceful look behind your lower perennials. It blooms earlier than many other common varieties of Feather Reed Grass too, starting in late spring and creates beautiful winter interest as well. The long lines add a lot of elegance to fresh arrangements, too. This ornamental grass is tall enough to make a screen. It's beautiful through meadows and along streams as it's tolerant of wet soil. Such an exceptional and long-lasting performance, it is to see why Karl Foerster received the Perennial Plant of the Year award. Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'
