'Karl Foerster' Feather Reed Grass is possibly the most useful plant available for creating a strong vertical form in garden design. Even after heavy rains and strong winds, it retains its narrow, upright posture. The deep green foliage is complemented by narrow tan flower spikes. This cool season grass is long-lived, adaptable to most climates and it is sterile, so reseeding is not a problem. The flowers hold up well in fresh or dried cut flower arrangements. It will tolerate full sun to part shade, and soils ranging from gravel to clay. It is most adapted to middle and high elevations.
