Lovely Colour
Bought it in 2010 (wrong year) it never came through the winter.
Perhaps I should try again .Not sure.

Brian . . . I expect you know(?) but it disappears completely in the winter. Was yours in a flowerbed or pot? This is in a 'stony' bed so that I know exactly where it is, and won't miss it when it finally starts shooting again around May. DO try again :)

it was in the ground but really had not time to establish before the very hard winter.

I have some in different places they look much nicer grouped together like yours Sheila ,I must find out if it's happy being moved !

It is very attractive and creates a lovely effect. The colours and the shadows of the grasses must look lovely.

Thanks very much Amy and Wildrose . . . believe it or not, this group is from just one plant which has gradually spread . . . lucky me :))

You are lucky Sheila ,I rescued one plant from under a shrub today ,I know it's probably not the right time to do it but it was smothered, I've potted it up I will do the others in the autumn or when it's cooler , you've spurred me into action :o)

Good idea to pot it up Amy - should be fine :))

As I've just sent you a question about cameras, I thought I'd look up your photos. You're supposed to be in 'favourites' as you predate the time when I stopped adding more ( it was getting seriously out of hand) but I don't think you've been coming up on my notifications - have noticed this before sometimes. Sorry for everything I've missed!! This is a lovely photo of a lovely grass.

Thanks Tuesday . . . "no worries" as they say!
