The world's most popular ornamental grass, 'Karl Foerster' has a strong upright habit and blooms with showy flowers. Create a stunning vertical effect with feathery stalks that emerge reddish-brown in spring and turn golden in fall. Blooms two to three weeks earlier than common feather reed grass. Thrives in wet soils, yet tolerates drier conditions. Stalks make great cut flowers. Sterile seeds do not produce unwanted seedlings.
