Calamagrostis acutiflora Karl Foerster

Calamagrostis ‘Karl Foerster’ is a striking ornamental grass prized for its upright, clump-forming habit and elegant, feathery plumes. Named after the renowned German nurseryman, Karl Foerster, this grass is celebrated for its reliability and low-maintenance nature.

With narrow, green foliage that turns golden in autumn, ‘Karl Foerster’ creates a dramatic vertical accent in the landscape. In summer, it produces erect flower stalks that bear feathery, purplish-pink blooms, which mature to a wheat-like tan, persisting into winter for added interest.

Ideal for adding height and texture to borders, ‘Karl Foerster’ thrives in full sun to part shade and well-draining soil. Drought tolerant once established, this grass is a favourite among gardeners for its graceful movement in the breeze and year-round appeal. It also serves as an excellent companion plant for perennials and shrubs, providing a stunning backdrop in garden beds and borders.
