It's lovely..it has a bamboo-like form but leafier, and more full-on. But it grows fast and pushes up long straight new stems from the base like a bamboo. It's a bright plant...ideal for dark dingy places...like the UK!!

I wish OH liked this one as much as I do, we grow the green one but this would look fantastic in it's place, it is in a dark area, so would brighten the whole border up, love it K.

Sometimes he will change his mind, and then pretend it was his idea in the first place, especially if it looks really good lol

Uh-huh, mine is still telling everyone he 'designed' the turf seat, when in fact he couldn't fathom what on earth I was dreaming up!
