can anyone identify this grass?
some one gave me this grass at the end of the summer in a planted bowl, i am kind of guessing carex of some sort, but there are so many of them would be good to know the variety. it is clump forming approx 12 -18inches diameter, it has long thin arching leaves that are very flexible and soft to the touch but are the sort that cut you really easy - you can rub your finger along it one way but not the other (if that makes any sense) the leaves are approx 8-10" long and varigated the middle is cream and the outer edges lime green - and it seems to be completely frost hardy and would guess evergreen - not showing any signs of dying back and after this morning - i think it would! not sure if it is a flowering type - it has'nt flowered since i have had it, but i was given it at the end of august so it is possibly an early one - can any of you help?
