This grass performs well in a wide range of climates, and is not invasive in any way. Clumps are strongly upright, with dark green leaves. Soft feathery green plumes appear in summer, maturing into stiff wheat-coloured spikes, which last into winter. This grass may be used in large groupings towards the back of a border, but also very effective when used more as a single specimen. Clumps may be easily divided in spring. Trim down to the ground in March. For a time this was also sold as under the cultivar name ‘Stricta', but trials at Longwood Gardens showed that ‘Stricta’ and ‘Karl Foerster’ are identical.

Very hardy for Manitoba with lovely winter show.
