Image of Feather Reed Grass

An upright, clumping, sterile hybrid from Germany, this grass can grow up to 2m in height when in flower over summer. It produces a dramatic upright form and can also be used for screening when mass planted. Feather Reed Grass needs pruning back to the base in winter and it performs best in good quality soils and some summer rainfall.
