Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Best grown in full sun to partial shade in a moist, well-drained soil, however,  will tolerate most soil types. Calamagrostis is drought tolerant, once established.  Prune foliage to 10 cm in the spring to make way for new growth.  

Additional Notes about Variegated Feather Reed Grass:


Cool Season Grasses: These grasses do the majority of their growing in early spring and start again when temperatures start to cool in the fall. During the warmer summer months, they stop growing and some will even go dormant. Cool season grasses flower in the spring or early summer. Most cool season grasses grow best in a consistently moist soil.
