Eldorado Feather Reed Grass has variegation that is unmistakably golden and green. In addition, its stems maintain a honey hue. Elongated inflorescences top off the stems, which can reach six feet. It shares characteristics of one of the nursery world’s all-time favorite grasses, Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’. In fact, it appeared from a division of Karl at Garden State Growers in Kettle Falls, WA. C. x acutiflora ‘Eldorado’ is a vigorous-growing plant when situated in full or part sun in well-drained soil and it appears to be tolerant to Zone 4. Its golden color can fade somewhat in the heat.
