Overdam Variegated Feather Reed Grass

 Calamagrostis × acutiflora 'Overdam'


'Overdam' is a hybrid feather reed grass cultivar which is valued for its variegated foliage, early bloom, vertical lines and ability to grow in wet soils. It is a slowly-spreading, clump-forming, cool season ornamental grass which features a compact, erect, slightly arching, slender foliage clump of stiff, narrow leaves variegated with rich green and white stripes. Leaves produce little fall color, eventually turning tan in winter. In June, tightly-vertical flower stalks rise above the foliage to 3' tall bearing narrow inflorescences of feathery, pinkish-green flowers which turn golden as the seeds mature in summer and eventually tan. Clumps generally provide good continuing winter interest. Similar to Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' except 'Overdam' clumps are more compact and foliage is variegated.
