Calamagrostis × acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’ Feather Reed Grass

This grass performs well in a wide range of climates, and soil conditions.It remains an attractive addition to the garden for months on end, and is not invasive in any way. Clumps are strong upright, and  dark green leaves. Soft feathery green plumes appear in summer, maturing into stiff wheat-coloured spikes, which carry on into winter. May be used in large groupings towards the back of a border, but also very effective when used more as a single specimen. Hardy enough to survive in containers or tubs in most regions. Clumps may be easily divided in spring. Trim to the ground in March.
