Elegant Solution for Garden Problem Areas

Why Karl Foerster Grass?

If you have a damp spot to fill or a narrow gap in your garden, Karl Foerster Grass is a tall and elegant plant to do the job. This ornamental grass will stay compact but it reaches for the sky with elegant plumes of feathery flowers. You'll get multi-seasonal interest with this towering grass.

Get vertical in your garden! Every landscape needs highs and lows to be visually interesting. Karl Foerster grass can definitely provide height as it stretches for 3 feet up to 5 or even more if it's got rich soil and plenty of water. It's a striking contrast to lower growing shrubs and annuals.

The shiny green foliage bears long stalks of soft, feathery flowers in the early spring. This cultivar blooms earlier than most ornamental grasses so it's a wise choice when you have a short growing season. The flowers emerge in plumes of pinky-purple and eventually fade to golden tan as fall arrives. The stalks stay upright, even after fading, to wave in the wind and give your garden winter appeal.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

But the best part? Because we've planted, nurtured, and shipped your Karl Foerster Grass with absolute care, you reap the rewards. Unlike similar varieties at big-box stores, your grass is a proven performer. We've done the hard work at our nursery so that you get consistent color and growth month after month.

Don't wait...this showy ornamental grass sells quickly. Order your own Karl Foerster Grass today, before it’s gone!

Note: If you purchase this grass in fall-winter, it may be cut back for the plant’s health. If your grass is cut back, don’t worry - it will grow even happier and healthier next spring!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your grass in an area with full sun (about 6 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil. Once you've chosen your location, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate your plant's root ball, place your plant, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.

You can also plant your grass in a pot. If you choose to do so, select a container that's about twice as large as your plant's shipped container (and ensure it has drainage holes), use organic soil mix, place your plant, and fill the pot with soil, leaving about 2 inches free at the top. Finally, water your newly-potted plant to settle the soil.

2. Watering: When the top of the soil feels dry down to about 2 or 3 inches, water your grass

Other than regular watering if your area does not receive consistent rainfall, Karl Foerster Grass requires very little additional maintenance.

Very Pleased

Everything came packaged very well. I was pleasantly surprised how full these were. I was hesitant of mail order and afraid I would only get a small plant that was in poor condition. Will buy again.

This is my first purchase of the grass and I was a bit concerned when I opened the package. I planted and have kept it watered. Will see next summer how it does.

Will see next spring if it is still alive.
