Foerster's Feather Reed Grass
One of the best cool season grasses with vertical growth to 4' tall.  Always regains its upright posture even after heavy rains.  The flowers appear in June and look nice all summer and fall remaining attractive through most of winter.  Can be used as a hedge as it grows tall and upright.  Nice also in groupings for vertical effect.  The seeds are sterile, which, of course, means the plant will not self-seed.

Lush green 6-8' foliage with flower spikes reaching 5' above foliage.  The more we grow this plant, the better we like it's distinctive characteristics.
