Foerster's Feather Reed Grass
Create a stunning vertical effect with feathery stalks that emerge reddish brown in spring and turn a rich golden color in fall. Blooms two to three weeks earlier than common feather reed grass. Thrives in wet soils, yet tolerates drier conditions. Stalks make great cut flowers. Sterile seeds do not produce unwanted seedlings.
Water regularly - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.
Average Landscape Size:
Foliage reaches 1 1/2 to 2 ft. tall and wide; bloom stalks reach 6 ft. tall.
Stunning Vertical Effect
Late spring to summer, persisting through fall.
