A Bit More

A compact reed grass native to California coastal bluffs and forests, Calamagrostis foliosa is a tuft of grey-green leaves that grows about 2’ tall and wide. During the spring and summer, narrow plumes of golden-wheat rise between the leaves and dance gracefully in the breeze. Cold hardy to 10° F, this grass is deer resistant and tolerant of coastal conditions and drought. Plant in full sun or bright shade and give good drainage. Use Mendocino Reedgrass in native meadows and low-water gardens.
