Grass Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Overdam'
This compact cultivar of Feather Reed Grass has creamy white stripes running vertically along the blades. It is semi-evergreen and has a similar vertical habit as the larger ‘Karl Foerster.’ Tawny bloom appears between June and July. Pinkish green bloom appears between June and July.
Though late to emerge in spring, grasses create a striking vertical accent in the summer garden; their flowers add grace to the fall garden, and in winter, they add more interest than almost any other plant. There are many to choose from in our climate.
