Beautiful, green and cream variegated foliage. A compact, early flowering grass that is easy growing and adds gorgeous texture and colour to the garden.
Calamagrostis ‘Overdam’ makes a beautiful specimen plant, adds vertical interest and works well in gardens or pots.
The new leaves have a touch of yellow before fading to cream. The foliage will overwinter and we recommend cutting back in early spring to make way for the fresh leaves. It grows to around 50cm and the flowers are double that.
The tall, purple pink foliage plumes fade to straw and can remain standing through winter. You could even cut them for arrangements.
Plant Calamagrostis ‘Overdam’ in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. A full sun to semi shade position is ideal. Water to establish, it takes plant roots around four weeks to penetrate the surrounding soil and they need regular watering until then. They are dry tolerant once established.
