dDoes anyone know what species + variety of grass this is?

It grows to about 6' in a good year, presumably depending on the spring rain. (It's definitely taller this year!) After it flowers in mid-late June, the flower heads gradually close. By mid-Aug the thin tubular stems have turned brown. It stays like that through the winter.




It's possibly calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'

Not sure on this one... The seed heads are a bit open for calamagrotis... But I have never grown it.

My first thought was Stipa gigantea. But I am not certain.
