Feather Reed Grass

This decorative grass produces magnificent feather plumes of wheat-colored seed heads that bloom in late spring and then decorate the landscape through winter. Its attractive, vertical clumping habit makes it ideal for use as a screen, accent plant or backdrop for other perennials. Lengthily stalks make a delightful cut-flower arrangement—It's easy to see why it received the Perennial Plant of the Year award! Feather Reed Grass ships established in its own container. Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'

  • Unique CharactersticsA native plant from North America that found popularity in Great Britain and now is being used more in the US. Gateway is smaller than the common species of Joe-Pye Weed and is more decorative. The large mauve-pink flower heads have twice as many flowers as the species and are at the top of showy reddish stems. The size (5-6') lends itself to the back of a mixed border and makes it an ideal companion plant to ornamental grasses and late summer blooming perennials like Echinacea and Physostegia.
