Calamagrostis brachytricha

Korean Feather Reed Grass is rarely seen in Australia and I have at last a small batch to sell. It is a summer growing species to 1metre or so tall with a neat clump of foliage which turns yellow before dying down in the autumn. It is how ever the fluffy flower plumes that will make you want to grow this grass. They are a soft cream colour with a slight purple tone when young and fresh ageing gracefully to a soft bone colour. The flowers last well in a vase if you can bring yourself to cut them.

It will grow well in sun to light shade as long as it has a bit of summer water and has shown no sings of self seeding for me. I have plants in 15cm. pots for $18.50.Calamagrostis brachytricha
