Feather Reed Grass
(Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster')
Gardeners looking for a taller grass for their autumn gardens should take a look at feather reed grass. Its longer, upright seed heads make a dramatic appearance in the fall garden, and it combines well with other grasses and flowering perennials. Some parts of this plant are known to be poisonous if ingested, so use caution if you have young children or pets.
