    Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass 4-5’ x 24” wide, (division propagated). 2001 Perennial Plant of the Year. Rather drought tolerant (but not quite xeric) and tolerating a wide range of garden soils. The feathery plumes emerge in early summer and ripen to handsome wheat-colored seed heads by fall. Combine with Artemisia ‘Powis Castle’ or Russian Sage. Plant in groups of three or five for best effect.

Fuchsias are pretty in the garden and make lovely earrings (just hook a French wire earring through the base of the flower...it's good to also brush off the pollen or nip the pollen tips off too).
