Calamagrostis arundinacea (Feather Reed Grass)
Calamagrostis arundinacea 'brachytricha'

"Unlike acutiflora varieties, Korean Feather Reed is a warm season grass blooming late summer. Its large bottle brush plumes emerge with a wonderful pink tint which change to cream late summer/early fall and finally to tan for winter interest. This variety is also more tolerant of shade compared to other Calamagrostis."
