Calamagrostis x acutiflora. 'Avalanche', otherwise known as Variegated Feather Reed is a clump forming perennial. This ornamental grass can grow to around 1.2m with a 60m spread (2 feet) and is suitable for growing in the UK. The variegated leaves are long, slender and grow to pinkish-white at the tips. Calamagrostis has a neat, upright habit and graceful purple pink plumes which fade to a silvery pink colour. Cut down the old flower stems hard in early spring and new fresh growth will soon start shooting.
