Korean Feather Reed Grass
24-40 inches high x 12-15 inches wide
Full Sun to Part Shade
‘09 Plant Select® and ‘07 Great Plants® Grass of the Year. This elegant clump forming grass is airier and more open than its eastern American native cousin, Karl Foerster. The long, open feathery dark pink tinged flower panicles bloom from August to October, unlike the June blooming familiar Karl Foerster, and the clumps are not quite as vertically stiff either. With moderate soil moisture in full sun to partial shade in most soils, expect pleasing summer through winter presence.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:
These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.
About sizes of our plants:
Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
