Feather Reed Grass 'Avalanche' 3 Gallon

Feather Reed Grass 'Avalanche' 3 Gallon

Calamagrostis acutiflora

This early blooming, cool season grass is perfect for small gardens or large landscape use with a slender, upright, clumping growth habit. This is a variegated form of 'Karl Foerster' with creamy-white, center striped foliage with green edges. It has the opposite variegation of 'Overdam'. Panicle, wheat-like flowers flush pink in summer and then fade to a straw color as they persist into fall and through winter. All feather reed grasses are easy to grow, clay soil tolerant, deer and rabbit resistant, and provide threes seasons of interest. Combine with Coreopsis and Russian Sage. 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.
