Beautiful,Paul.....must look out for this one....is it hardy?

27 Aug, 2012

 

Thanks Meadowland - I have feeling pennisetums are more tender than other grasses - it claims to be tender in harder frosts

27 Aug, 2012

 

Love it too.

At least we have GOY. for the dark winter days Paul :)

I am just the same Paul. It was so dark here today, never really had any daylight, and I've been fighting sleep off all day! I think I shall need to get my light box out very soon and I can't believe it is back to dark nights already and no summer to speak of at all. Let's all try to keep each other positive this winter eh? :)

13 Sep, 2012
