Calamagrostis nutkaensis

Large shade tolerant grass with attractive plume flowers. Evergreen, 2-3ft. high and wide. Native to hilltops in the Bay Area that capture extra moisture, occasional up to Alaska.



On Mt Davidson in San Francisco the reed grass spills over the road cuts with culms hanging down the sheer 10-foot drops like a skirt, protecting them completely from any chance of erosion.
