Feather Reed Grass

Calamagrostis acutiflora Overdam

Overdam is a perennial grass with a compact architectural habit. It forms clumps of narrow, yellow to cream striped leaves. The tall, swaying flower heads are a lovely purple colour which changes to brown in winter.

A great low maintenance grass that is great in sheltered and non-sheltered gardens alike that will tolerate everything but the poorest of soils.
