Feather Reed Grass  'Karl Foerster' 3 Gallon

Feather Reed Grass 'Karl Foerster' 3 Gallon

Calamagrostis acutiflora

Feather Reed grasses are an early blooming, clay soil-tolerant family perfect for smaller gardens but also large landscapes needing a slender, upright grass. They have a dense, clumping habit and come in green to striped foliage varieties. These plants are distinguished by wheat-like panicle flowers that begin a soft pink and then fade to a straw color as they persist into fall and through winter. 'Karl Foerster' was Perennial Plant of the Year 2001 and is loved for its dramatic, red-bronze flower spikes that begin late spring/early summer and truly persist through the entire fall and hold their form through winter. Tolerant of moist to wet soils, make excellent specimen and hedges. Plant in moist to well-drained, average to poor soil. Water well after planting; maintain 1" of water, once a week the first year. Use slow release fertilizer in spring or at planting. Mulch 1-2" to suppress weeds and retain soil moisture. In general, cut ornamental grasses down as low as possible in late winter. Divide in spring or fall when necessary.
