  • Feather Reed Grass, Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' is one the most well know and highly praised perennials on the market. Tall, slender blades and prominent plumes create a dramatic expression

    • • Low-maintenance, and exceptionally hardy
    • • Resistant to deer and other pests
    • • Attracts birds

    Simple but elegant grass for gardens and landscaping

    Feather reed grass is renowned for its tall blades of grass, highlighted by feathery blooms that gently wave in even the slightest bit of wind. They grow up to 6 feet tall, and form in clumps of up to 3 feet wide, giving them the solid expression of a shrub but with the delicate appeal of other decorative grasses. Blooms take on a pinkish hue early in the season and then fade to a golden tan.

    Beautiful grasses that grow virtually anywhere
    While feather reed grass is exceptionally well-suited for use within your existing landscaping, it also thrives in large containers for use on a patio or terrace. Group several plants together and use them as a living privacy barrier for both residential or commercial use. The possibilities really are endless.

    The beginner gardener’s dream…
    Feather reed grass is not only extremely hardy in a wide range of weather and lighting conditions, but its impervious to deer and other pests and requires very little maintenance. It is the ideal plant for those who don’t have time to tend to their landscaping but still want a “put together” look and loads of curb appeal.

Good value

I have ordered these twice from the Greenhouse. Both times the plants arrived very well packaged, the plants alive and healthy, and the soil still damp.

I wouldn't say it is cheap, but it is good value. I get exactly what I want, shipped well, shipped promptly, and good quality plants.

Wonderful

Planted these a couple of weeks ago and they have already doubled in size. My only complaint is I should have bought more! The packing and care could not have been better.

Not the best

The grasses I bought from The Greenhouse arrived in a box and now they are turning yellow. The plants I bought from Shrubbucket are doing great and are delivered in a truck and not boxed. Sorry Laura, not thrilled.

Just emailed you. Since we ship from Oregon and aren't in NY like Shrub bucket we have to use boxes. We don't typically have any issues with this. Please continue to reach out with any concerns or questions to hello@thegreenhousepnw.com

Kindly,
Kristi

It's Alive

Grass was dormant when it arrived and I made the mistake of emailing before seeing the label about its dormancy. I got kind of a snarky reply back. There was no label or sticker about it's size or the amount of sunlight required, but I may have missed it.
