Well done Dotty - phew - I'm glad you're writing it and not trying to say it! I've just looked it up in my Knoll catalogue and see that it's Evergreen, so adding it to my favourites to remind me :)) Thanks.

It looks great.

Sheila, in our book by Neil Lucas it says for moist soil, and some degree of warmth.......what it does not say is tender, which it is?
Thanks Linda it is a most unusual sedge.

Ah . . . grateful thanks Dotty, that's pretty important. Why are the nurserymen so reluctant to tell us?!

I'm glad you found it Angela it's quite a mouthful ! I get very annoyed when they don't tell you how tender some of these grasses are :o(

Beautiful...added to favourites. I found one site that says its 'not for the colder areas' which probably makes it frost hardy, or borderline. I'm sure it will be fine with you Angela. :)
