Karl Foerster's Feather Reed Grass is a visually stunning ornamental grass that is a soft green. It has feathery stalks that emerge a reddish-brown in spring and turn a beautiful golden yellow in fall.  These feathery stalks bloom weeks earlier than most Feather Reed Grasses and continue to bloom until fall.  Prefers sunny areas in rich moist soils.
