Calamagrostis brachytricha

Korean Feather Reed

Plant Type: Grass - Ornamental
Exposure: Morning Sun / Afternoon Shade  Shade Tolerant  

Clump-forming, warm season grass with bright green leaves reaching about 2 feet. In late summer blooms emerge with a pink tint and reach 3 to 4 feet. The feathery flowers fade to cream in fall and finish in a straw color in winter. A graceful addition to the shade or part shade garden! Will also tolerate sun with sufficient moisture. One of the few flowering grasses that is happy in the shade. Wonderful for cut flowers.





Calamagrostis brachytricha Plant Care:

Does best in moist, fertile soil in full sun but in hot climates needs light or afternoon shade.
