Calamagrostis 'Karl Foerster'

Feather reed grass

Price: €9.95

A very celebrated grass which is very popular with landscape architects. This plant is a long-blooming, low maintenance, long-lived perennial grass for full sun to partial shade. Grows best in well-drained fertile soil with sufficient moisture, but will tolerate heavier clay soils and drier sites. It is considered a low maintenance grass and it can pretty well look after itself. It is a stiff, vertical plant with green to ochre flowers late in the summer. Looks great during the winter, and suits mass planting as in the photographs on the right - seen here in DunLaoghaire College of Art and Design and AIB headquarters in Ballsbridge, Dublin. Cut to near ground level in late winter / early spring. To 150cms high. 3L container. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops. (A)
