Avalanche Feather Reed Grass
Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Avalanche'
|Description||Create stunning vertical effects with feathery stalks that emerge reddish brown in spring, then turn golden in fall. Stiff, variegated foliage with white centers and green margins forms a dense, narrow clump. Excellent for use as a landscape accent or a very dramatic mass planting. Plumes are an attractive addition to cut flower arrangements.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Foliage reaches 3 to 4 ft. tall, 1 to 2 ft. wide; plumes to 6 ft. tall.|
|Care||Thrives in rich, moist soils, but highly adaptable. Best foliage and plumes in full sun; benefits from part shade in hottest summer climates. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; tolerates dry spells when established. Cut to the ground in late winter just before new shoots appear.|
