Grasses in February

Categories Winter gardenPosted on
Calamagrostis arundinacea brachytricha

Another ornamental grass that can still look stunning in February sunlight is Calamagrostis arundinacea var. brachytricha. It is closely related to a more frequently seen grass, the ‘Karl Foerster’ feather reed grass. By this time of year in Toronto, however, ‘Karl Foerster’ has lost its seed heads while the brachytricha has not.
