One of the world's most popular grasses. Beautiful, versatile and nearly carefree. It moves gracefully even in the lightest breeze. Strictly upright to 1.5m. We have always grown this grass and found it's popularity is increasing remarkably in the last few years.
A close relative to Calamagrostis ‘Karl Forester’, except ‘Overdahm’ is valued for its variegated foliage with cream and green linear markings on each leaf. With slender foliage clump of stiff, narrow leaves up to 1m high, this selection is a little more compact than ‘Karl Forester’. Provides both textural and colour interest in the garden.
Reddish brown foliage in a low mounding habit are the features of this grass. Carexcomans 'Bronze Form' makes a stunning contrast to Ipomea batatas, Agastache 'Apricot Sprite' or 'Forever Summer Melon', as well as any silver foliage plant. New Zealand in origin, it is often used en masse in public space plantings. It thrives in moist, fertile, well drained soils. Excessive winter wet will cause the plants to rot. Great in pot culture. Approximately 20-30cm tall.
Striking powdery blue foliage is the outstanding feature of this plant. Looks superb with grey or bluestone paving or walling. 30cm tall. Buff coloured plumes provide an eye catching contrast. Best grown in dryer areas with low humidity. Good drainage is essential as 'Elijah Blue' will not handle 'wet feet'.
