Really lovely, what is the red grass please?

8 Feb, 2015

 

Thanks all, the grass does look pretty in the sun, Gee the grass is a Red Sedge Uncinia rubra, likes moist soil and full sun, cheap and cheerful from B & Q and can be split......

I found a similar grass to this growing in the flowerbed. Gerry put it in a pot for me. Must have been seeded by a bird.

those colours look fab together..;-)

They make a great impact. I love the colours together.

Like the colours of the Sedge (will keep an eye out for it) with the Ogripodium. Is the shrub in the middle Rhododendron (Azalea) luteum? That would look splendid!

Sandra thank you, it was planted for impact, HB it worked then?
Siris the plant in the middle is Cornus controversa variegata (Wedding cake tree!!) it is very slow growing, so by the time it outgrows its position the garden will have changed lol

That's nice, the white variegated foliage will contrast with the black. I have double snowdrops and silver-leaved Cyclamen interspersed with my Ogripodium.

Oh yes I can see that going together well.....
