Tall Purple Moor grass (Molinia arundinacea) 'Karl Foerster'

See-through, delicate plumes on upright and arching stems energetically leap skybound from a green, tall foliar pedestal. Bearing the name of the legendary German nurseryman Karl Foerster, this Molinia’s gossamerlike inflorescences first emerge suffused in purply raisin shades, and by fall gilded highlights set the lofty blooms aglow, further heightening the butter yellow hues of the stalks and leaves below. Autumn colour yellow.
