We wanna be togevver ! :o)

The Uncina rubra(I think that was it's name) kindly seeded itself in the middle of this grass..and as the one planted in the gravel ,died..I was delighted when I saw it growing here..how good was that? :o)

Great isn't it Sheila and Paul? I bet if you planted it that way,it wouldn't grow ! :o)

I did mix the black grass with red baron - it almost works :D

Almost,Paul ?? aren't you sure if you like it or not ?

it is actually pretty nice - the red hasn't came through too well this year - the black in the middle is so nice :D

Maybe it will improve soon,Paul..just takes time doesn't it?

I love Uncina..they tend to get a bit tatty looking and there are always self-sown ones to follow...

I agree,Moti..mine died off in the centre,and looked awful,but I kept finding little seeded bits here and there..but this is the only one that grew...it must have wanted some company :o)

Looks like you bred a new plant ... its so symetrical too, bet you couldn't get one to grow this way if you tried:-)

It does,doesn't it Ba? a little secret...I dug a bit off the variegated one ,a few weeks ago,as it was spreading too much at one side..so it had a bit of cosmetic surgery to
achieve 'the look'! :o) .Sorry to shatter the illusion :o)

It is Carole..they have grown well this year :o)

What is it growing in Sandra? Is it Acorus Ogon it's growing with? ... and yes my illusion is shattered:-))

Sorry about that Ba,but as you know ,I wouldn't tell porkies to get your admiration ! :o) ..I can't remember it's name,as I have had it so long now..it could well be what you thought..but I seem to remember 'Aurea' coming into it somehow..not a lot of help there then !! :o)
