Reed Grass - Calamagrostis - is a genus of plants belonging to the grass family Poaceae, with over 260 species mainly occurring in temperate areas of the globe. They are often present at greater altitudes. These grasses are one of the most efficient and visually appealing of all the ornamental grasses, with fluffy flower plumes eventually fading between purple-tinted green towards yellow to a light-brownish yellow color as they mature.
These flowers bloom well into the autumn season and are applicable in both fresh and dried arrangements. The leaves of these bushy perennials are generally hairless and thin.
The ligules are typically blunt in shape. A panicle generates as a result of the inflorescence. You may grow them as Rhizomatous plants with underground stems and shoots, stoloniferous plants that spread through runners, or caespitose plants that grow in tufts or clusters. Each bisexual spikelet has a single floret, and they are often purple or purple-brown. When you group the spikelets, they form inflorescences, which generally appear during the first to second weeks of summer.
This feathery vertical decorative grass is often grown in groups to create a dramatic vertical impact. You may find it in a variety of colors and textures. It grows naturally in damp soils but can also thrive in drier situations; however, you must water it every week to develop a strong root structure. During the flowering season, which lasts from late spring through summer, it may reach 36 to 60 inches in size. From midsummer through fall, thin stems bear soft, slender clusters of silver to pinkish-brown to bronze blooms.
By fall, the seed heads will become golden and survive far into winter. They stand above thick clusters of erect to arching, thin leaves that occasionally possess white and yellow patterns, providing a striking sight. Fresh shoots emerge from the base of the plant in the spring after the top growth has fallen back throughout the winter. Many Calamagrostis species are visually similar, yet they often reside in various environments and have distinct geographical ranges. Calamagrostis. acutifolia, or feather grass, is a prominent hybrid that crosses two different species, notably Calamagrostis. arundinacea and Calamagrostis. epigejos.
During the summer, flower stalks that grow to 5 feet tall and carry feathery flower spikes overshadow the clumps of thin leaves that grow to 18-36 inches in height.
You may use it to weave through mixed borders or as a backdrop. Furthermore, it is also helpful to combine with other grasses or in prairie-style arrangements, including late-blooming perennials, like echinaceas or rudbeckias, to create a stunning picture.
