Reedgrass, also known botanically Calamagrostis x acutiflora, is also known as Feather Reedgrass.
Unlike other ornamental grasses that flop after they bloom, Reedgrass remains tidy and upright all year. Growing in dense clumps of tall, narrow, green leaves that reach 3 feet long, Reedgrass bears pinkish-purple, feathery flower spikes above its leaves. During the summertime, Reedgrass gradually turns tan or golden, which lasts into winter. Reedgrass has a moderate growth rate and is best planted in the spring or fall. As an ornamental grass, this plant is an exceptional choice.
Plant your Reedgrass root ball at the same depth it was growing in its nursery container. Reedgrass is fairly low maintenance; watering is necessary when the soil dries out. Reedgrass grows best in direct sunlight of at least 6 hours per day yet requires some shade on hot afternoons, especially in warmer climates. However, too much shade will cause your Reedgrass not to flower as profusely, its leaves will get floppy, and the plant will grow smaller than normal. Reedgrass grows best in rich, moist, well-draining soil and can tolerate heavy clay soil in wet areas of your home garden landscape, such as on the bank of a pond. Reedgrass is an exceptional ornamental as a filler grass to help with soil erosion.
Reedgrass is a cool-season ornamental that doesn't thrive well in intense heat. Plant this grass when the temperature is below 75 degrees Fahrenheit, so it can establish its root system and take in moisture before the hot weather. Reedgrass can survive temperatures below freezing, yet in the northern regions, it is helpful to put mulch over the plant to insulate it for the winter. Humidity isn't an issue for Reedgrass, with good air circulation around the plant.
Reedgrass will bring a delightful unique appearance to your wetland-style garden landscape. Reed Grass also attracts small birds who enjoy nesting in its clumps and foraging its seeds. Plant it as a border grass among other plants and flowers for visual appeal all year.
