The Feather Reed Grass is an elegant ornamental grass, great as an accent or even fast-growing screening plant. The Feather Reed grass sends up tall, 6 foot, reddish-brown plumes in the spring on a low mound of wispy green grass. The plumes fade to a beautiful bronze in the fall. Once established, this plant is low-maintenance. Beautiful around pools, in a container, a screening hedge, or even in a minimalist garden.
Thrives in rich, moist soils, but highly adaptable. Best foliage and plumes in full sun; benefits from part shade in hottest summer climates. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; tolerates dry spells when established. Cut to the ground in late winter just before new shoots appear.Pruning time: late winter.
