Description

Description

Upright, clump-forming green foliage with a bit of a bronze tinge. This vigorous Korean feather reed grass loves sun or even partial shade. It stands up to prolonged high heat well and has great salt tolerance too. 'Caspian' holds its form strongly all summer, and in late summer, pink-blushed flower spikes top the stems, providing lovely subtle color well into autumn. Yellow foliage in fall adds even more interest. Topping out at about 4 feet, 'Caspian' is great in groups or masses, as a container plant or even a specimen.
