Sue's Notes about Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' (Feather-reed grass 'Karl Foerster')

'Karl Foerster' stands well through the winter, looking lovely in frost and low winter sun. Cut down in early spring when first signs of new growth show. Doesn't appear to have an RHS AGM, but it should have!
