Reed Grass: Karl Foerster


Beauty, functionality and ease of growth combine to make this ornamental grass a best-seller! Tall stems of wheat-like flowers rise in June above the clump of leaves and remain attractive well into the winter. Upright form makes it ideal for narrow spaces, but it also looks terrific when planted in mass. Mingles well with just about anything including Butterfly Bush (Buddleia), Blue Mist Spirea (Caryopteris), Coneflower (Echinacea), Cranesbill (Geranium), Daylily (Hemerocallis), and Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum). Cut back old foliage to a few inches in early spring.

Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.
