Can any one ID this grass for me please????????
Late on last summer my mother-in-law gave me an Agave to rescue, and when potting it up i found this tiny sprig of pink stripy grass growing out of the side, so i planted it in the garden and it went absolutely mad. it is obviously very fast growing - it is rhizomatous, and as much as i like it i did'nt want it all over the garden, so i dug it up and put it in a large pot, last year it grew to about 18" - 2ft tall, and as the leaves matured the pink faded so that it was cream and pale green stripes. very thin and feathery quite soft fury leaves - the sort that easierly give a nasty grass cut (as i found out! lol) but no flowers - i had thought that it could be 'Canary Reed Grass' or 'Ribbon Grass' but i think these both flower and mine did'nt last year. but then it was planted quite late on - so it is possible that it missed its flowering time - if early on in the season. It died right back in the autumn but has now reappeared. does anyone have any ideas?
