Korean Feather Reed Grass is defined by bright green foliage and showy, pink-tinged plumes that emerge in mid-summer. Feathery plumes shift to creamy tan as seeds mature in fall, drawing birds to feast. Erect stems provide strong vertical structure in perennial gardens and yellow fall color. A versatile grass tolerant of shade and clay soils. (Calamagrostis brachytricha)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
36-48"’ tall x 24-36" wide. Korean Feather Reed Grass steps in where other ornamental grasses fail. While excessive rainfall and heavy, poor-draining soils make many grasses flop, Korean feather reed grass thrives off the moisture. This is a grass for wet conditions; plant in low spots throughout the landscape, alongside streambanks, and around water gardens. In hot climates plants benefits from shade, particularly from hot afternoon sun. Plants will flower in light shade and have a looser, relaxed form. Plant as a specimen or mass among shrubs and perennials in mixed borders. Also makes a great addition to cutting gardens where plants are grown for their soft plumes. Korean feather reed grass is tolerant of black walnut trees. Keep plants tidy by cutting foliage back to 6-12 inches in late winter before new growth emerges.
