    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

    • • One of the most popular ornamental grasses
    • • 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.

    • • Width: 2-3 feet

    The plants were received in great condition and I have temporarily planted them in pots until after my house gets repainted.

    Feather Reed Grass 'Karl Foester^

    The plants arrived quickly, very well packaged and in good condition. The instructions for planting them in the yard were very clear and easy to follow. We planted one in our front and the other in our front yard - both plants look lively and healthy. Many thanks! I will certainly revisit your website again.
