Calamagrostis emodensis

Small reed grass

This species was named after Mount Emodus in the Western Himalayas and is a native of Pakistan. It is completely hardy in the UK and forms very neat and tidy tufts that are not invasive. 

From summer through winter it bears tall white spikes of arching flowers that look stunning when planted to catch the light. 

It tolerates light shade and most soils except waterlogged areas. 

It's slow growing so will take a couple of years to really perform but it's definitely worth the wait. 

A very decorative mid-height grass suitable for any sized garden. Deciduous.
