Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass is a hardy, easily grown grass that is one of the most popular of all the ornamental grasses. It forms a dense clump of green leaves, topped with tall, upright stems of nodding seed-heads, that are soft-purple to begin with, and then turn sandy-brown, lasting for months, even into snow. This plant is incredibly hardy, thriving from zone 3 to zone 9. It begins to flower early, so even in areas with a short growing season you can be sure you will have plenty of beautiful stems to look great in the garden, or to cut for flower arrangements. Plant this grass as a specimen, in groups, or as an informal hedge, swaying in the breezes.
- Mature size is 3-6 ft tall/2-3 ft wide
- Hardy in zones 3-9
- Full Sun to Light Shade
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
