Green and white foliage, which rises stiffly and grows 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Flowers appear in July displaying gold narrow plumes to reach 5 feet tall. Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Overdam' is similar to the larger green 'Karl Forester'. This refined variety is smaller in size and can also tolerate shade in hot climates. However it prefers full sun and consistently moist soil. Great for pond or stream banks, accents, borders and backdrops.
