Calamagrostis brachytricha 'Caspian' (Korean Feather Reed Grass) is an exceptional ornamental grass. Hardy and low-maintenance, its form is more rounded and full than other Calamagrostis varieties. The feathery fronds add a beautiful element to the late-season garden. Lovely in arrangements using fresh or dried fronds. Happy in full sun to partial shade with regular moisture. Native to Asia it is found in moist woodlands where it tolerates heavy clay soil. Tolerant of low moisture once established, ‘Caspian’ will need supplemental moisture in hot, dry conditions. Cut to the ground in spring for a fresh look in the new season. It won an Award of Garden Merit in 2006 from the Royal Horticulture Society for its noteworthy qualities.
