What Houzz contributors are saying:

Andrew Keys added this to 5 Hot Cool-Season Grasses
First up is everyone's favorite, 'Karl Foerster' feather reed grass (Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster', zones 5 to 9). 'Karl' is the picture of long-season interest. It starts early as a distinguished dark green clump, then virtually explodes in a fluffy fount of pink gingham flowers that nearly triple its height. Those later fade to their signature wheat color and stay pretty for months, even into winter. This grass is A-OK with drought in summer, its nongrowing period, and its columnar form is always fetching.Photo by Daryl Mitchell via Wikimedia Commons
