Product information "Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'"

Feather reed grass is one of the best grasses for our gardens. It forms clump-like, erect tufts of dark green stalks. The wide-tongued, cream-colored spikes appear starting in July. Feather reed grass prefers well-drained, humus-rich garden soil and tolerates sunny locations as well as partially shaded areas. This plant can be used in any perennial bed as a background plant. It structure and character due to its habit. The stalks can remain until well into the winter. The dry spikes also look very attractive in bouquets and flower arrangements.
