Karl Foerester Feather Reed Grass

 

Common Name: Feather Reed Grass, Ornamental Grass

Perennial Plant of the Year for 2001. This is a cool season, clumping grass with a compact, erect growth habit. It is especially prized in the north where the magnificent, wheat-like seed heads appear in late spring and last all season long.  C. 'Karl Foerster' provides a great backdrop for lower growing, flowering perennials throughout the year. It is also useful for screening purposes and will not reseed. A good choice for heavy clay soils.
