Description Cultural Notes Plant Care
Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Overdam' (Variegated Feather Reed Grass). Very similar to Karl Foerster, but compact foliage is variegated with creamy white vertical stripes. Strong, architectural, upright habit, with thin, arching foliage makes a stunning vertical accent; useful for back borders. The grass is often used around water gardens and in naturalized areas that tend to flood. Excellent for winter interest in the garden. Silky, reddish-pink flower plumes bloom July-August. Must have winter chill to bloom. Non-invasive, and won't reseed. Prefers moist, well draining soil, but is tolerant of various soil conditions, including heavy clay. Will be smaller in dry sites. Full sun to light shade, especially in hot, dry climates, and the South. Considered deer resistant once established.
Special Characteristics:
  • Salt Tolerant
