Calamagrostis brachytricha, also known as Korean feather reed grass produces gentle arching fountains of glossy green foliage, and tall, fluffy feathery plumes that emerge silvery-grey with pinkish-purple tint in summer but in autumn take on butter shade that lasts well into winter extending the season interest. Tolerates shady sites well, but also happy in a sunny border with regular moisture. Ideal for drying and cutting. The RHS have given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

How to take care of Calamagrostis brachytricha
Ornamental grasses can be grown as specimens, in borders, as screens or in containers. Suitable for any well drained soil , they can be planted in a sunny or partially shaded position. Enrich the planting site with organic matter prior to planting. Leave plenty of space between tall varieties. Plant in a hole deep enough so that the root ball will be a little deeper than the plant was growing in it's container. Water well after planitng and for a few weeks until the plant is established. Mulch grasses with organic material in the autumn to protect roots and shoots from freezing. Grasses which die back completely in winter can be rejuvenated by cutting the entire plant back to about 10cm in early spring. Divide grasses every few years in the spring just as they are beginning to break dormancy. Dig the plant up and cut the clump into divisions with a sharp knife or spade, replant the divisions.
The emerging growth can be a bit tatty, so place it in the middle of the border.
