Plant Type: Grasses

Feather Reed is a cool season grower with dark green, shiny foliage that appears in early spring and lasts until late fall. The flowers appear in June – earlier than many other ornamental grasses.

At first they are loose, feathery and pinkish in color, then, through the summer, they become very narrow, gradually turning a tan wheat color that lasts through the fall.

This is a cool-season grass, which allows planting or transplanting in spring or fall. It truly has year-round beauty.
