Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grasses - Driveway, Screened Porch, IB2Ds - Summer 2021
We have 14 Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grasses planted in various places around our yard - five outside our kitchen window, four outside our screened porch, three in a little island between our driveway and front porch stairs and a pair planted 'in between two driveways" (IB2Ds). I've posted photos of these various grasses on the blog over the years, but I wanted to drop a series of photos of these in the [garden diary] so I can track their progress.
First up, four grasses planted outside of our screened porch. I planted one back in 2018 because I had one too many. But, last Fall, I added three more to make this a four-pack below:
Next up, three large grasses that were planted in 2017 before we moved in and our house was finished. These are good-sized, but are experiencing (I think) a little bit of center-rot where the center part of these grasses is dying - and the recommended course of action is to dig up and divide. Here's a look at these grasses in 2018, in Fall 2019, and again last year in 2020.
And the final photo in this Karl Foerster grass roundup shows off a pair of them that I planted last Fall after buying them from the Morton Arboretum Fall Plant Sale. This is the 'in between two driveways' bed below:
