Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'

Introduced by German nurseryman Karl Foerster, this dramatic feathery grass is very popular for garden and landscape. A relatively early bloomer, it is a low maintenance and beautiful and makes a great garden accent. Sometimes known as “Reed Grass”, it has a vertical growth pattern with tall slender leaves and tall, weeping feathery plumes growing 5-6 feet tall. These graceful pinkish plumes will turn from dark maroon to bronze and finally to a golden tan color that is an extraordinary sight when they blow in a gentle breeze. The Karl Foerster works well in most garden settings and as a screen, backdrop, hedge or in a container.
