Reed grasses are ornamental grasses famous for their assessment of drought, which, for example, cope very well
garden soils. These are undemanding grasses with high frost resistance - for beginners and busy gardeners.
Easy to Grow!
Overdam is an interesting ornamental grass with a columnar shape, smaller than Carl Foester 'which changes its face
at any time of the year.
The advantage of grass is that it starts growing early.
In early spring, young leaves grow rapidly, reaching a length of 80 cm and a width of 1 m, with a dense and erect column factor.
The leaves have a bright, bright margin that turns yellow in spring. In summer, the margins turn faded and the leaves turn yellow.
In June, inflorescences emerge from the clump, which can grow up to 130 cm in height.
It is in June and July that the inflorescences are fluffy, wide in burgundy brown tones.
In August, when the plant fades, the inflorescences lose on their female and dry out to a straw yellow-brown
Colour. Leave in this form all winter until spring. Dried up inflorescences look especially decorative in winter
garden, they will be covered with a shiny layer of frost.
It is worth mentioning that this is a non-expansive grass, which is clearly compact and does not pose a threat
for other plants in the bed.
Position and cultivation
The plant is easy and undemanding to grow. Perfect advice on garden soils, as long as they are not extremely barren,
dry and those with a tendency to water stagnation. Prefers moist, fertile, well-drained soil, but withstands drought.
Perennial likes a position in full sun, but also in partial shade.
The grass does not require special care from us, it is fully frost-resistant. It is worth leaving the dried up inflorescences
for the winter, therefore it is recommended to cut dry blades low in spring when cleaning in flower beds.
Every 2-3 years you can sprinkle the grass with compost, and when the screen is weak - dig it out and rejuvenate it by dividing the clump.
In urban greenery, on well-kept squares, by fountains or urban-style gardens, the high one is pretty
a background for profusely flowering and hardy ground cover roses "The Fairy" and "Fairy Dance".
Reed grass will work well with bouquet hydrangea and garden goldenrod, tiger lily and garden yarrow 'Cerise Queen'.
