Lavender has been used often to great effect. But not around pools - it can attract bees.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Feather Reed Grass
Distinguishing traits. Commonly described as the grass in perpetual motion, feather reed grass brings together two great architectural qualities: vertical reach and movement. The light feathery foliage ebbs and sways with any amount of wind, enabling any landscape to appear more dynamic and responsive to the forces of nature. While this grass grows to a height of 2-3’, the subtle pink foliage rosettes that appear in June can reach over 5’. By fall, the color has matured into a beautiful golden wheat hue and should remain so until snow comes, or even after. Keep an eye out now for a glimpse of its perfect tan lustre.
Genevieve Schmidt added this to 8 Ornamental Grasses for Coastal Gardens
Feather reed grass: Calamagrostis x acutiflora "Karl Foerster" is an upright, slender grass with blonde flowers (shown) from late summer through early winter. Because it reaches 4 feet tall but only 2 feet wide, it can be an effective choice against the house or near pathways where a wider plant would overtake the space. Feather reed grass needs pruning only once a year in late winter or early spring before it begins to regrow. Cut it back to a height of 5 inches tall, and it will reward you with fresh new growth come spring and summer.

This modern look blends well with a naturalized area. The concrete blocks and lawn give a sense of order and design. Using dwarf Mondo grass is a smart low maintenance Eco alternative to the lawn.

Feather reed grass thrives in many climates, even surviving the harsh winters of Scandinavia and Canada. If you can add one more perennial grass to your planting plan, this one's an easy choice.
