Calamagrostis xacutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’ Feather Reed Grass

 Calamagrostis xacutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’ -Feather Reed Grass

This grass is highly used for  gardening landscape areas.

This cool season clumping grass is one of our all-time favorites.

With an erect growth habit and late spring plumes, ‘Karl’ offers a good backdrop for low growing flowering perennials throughout the year.

Prefers sunny, dry locations and can tolerate heavy clay-based soil. A good screen plant that does not re-seed.

It is the first ornamental grass to receive the Perennial Plant of the Year Award (2001).

Karl Foerster is a Cool season grass with  green foliage.

Grows to 2 feet, 6 feet with flower,  and likes sun,  and dry conditions.

Plume  flowers  in May

Hardy in  Zones 4-7

 Origin: Europe

Very nice erect grass, and does not invade , or spread , stays in a nice clump grass , and is one of  the most popular on the market today.

Happy Gardening
