Comments about High Country Gardens Calamagrostis acutiflora Karl Foerster:
This is my first try with grasses. It will probably take a full year to evaluate my opinion of how it looks in my garden, but it's definitely summer-hardy.

About Me Getting Started
These are very hardy and good looking. Easy to plant. No problems with any pests. We ordered 14 and none have died. We look forward to seeing how they develop and change over the Fall and Winter months. Highly recommended.

By Fran in OKC
from OKC., OK
I purchase almost all my plants from High Country even though I live in OKC. All of them make my garden so special. My most recent purchase is just now growing for the spring season and I can't wait to see how it looks with all my others plants.

Love this grass!
By Ruidoso Gardener
from Ruidoso, NM
Karl Foerster makes my xeriscaped front yard look like I know what I'm doing in landscaping. It looks like the pictures in the catalog; performs as described; adds interest and height to my collection of grasses and wildflowers.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
