Simple but elegant grass for gardens and landscaping
Feather reed grass is renowned for its tall blades of grass, highlighted by feathery blooms that gently wave in even the slightest bit of wind. They grow up to 6 feet tall, and form in clumps of up to 3 feet wide, giving them the solid expression of a shrub but with the delicate appeal of other decorative grasses. Blooms take on a pinkish hue early in the season and then fade to a golden tan.
Beautiful grasses that grow virtually anywhere
While feather reed grass is exceptionally well-suited for use within your existing landscaping, it also thrives in large containers for use on a patio or terrace. Group several plants together and use them as a living privacy barrier for both residential or commercial use. The possibilities really are endless.
