by Burlington, VT Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers Wagner Hodgson
This is a stunning use of Karl Foerster' Feather Reed Grass ( Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'). 2001 Perennial Plant of the Year.
Strongly vertical and heat tolerant, 48 - 72 inches tall, perennial, hardy to -10 degrees.
Does well in heavy clay soils, unlike many of the other ornamental grasses.
In late fall cut back but leave 1/3 in place - do not cut back too harshly. In late winter cut back rest of plant.
