Variegated Feather Reed Grass
Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Overdam

Price: $35.99

Availability: IN STOCK


Ornamental grass with stiffly upright, 2-3 ft. tall x 2-3 ft. wide clumps of new, emerging, green foliage with bright yellow margins which fade to white with a pinkish blush. In summer, tall, feathery, pink inflorescences are produced. These change to a light purple color in early summer, then ripen into golden wheat-like sheaves by mid-summer, remaining attractive well into fall. Feather Reed grass is a good companion plant for Black-Eyed Susan or sedum as well as useful for strong vertical effects. This is one of the few grasses that will thrive in wet clay or in seaside areas.  Plant in full sun in ordinary or moist soil; is somewhat drought tolerant once established.
