Stipa Gigantea and Geranium 'Macrorhizum' (Stipa gigantea (Giant feather grass))

Just starting to send out its flower spikes, this had grown so big I split it this year and now have 2, got to be my favourite grass :-)

Thanks for reminding me that it's time to give my regular Stipa its annual combing. Just how big does this get?

This ones around 4ft across Wylie when the flower spikes are fully out would say they're 4-5ft tall, it seemed to split naturally into 2 when I dug it up lol, so the others just as big :-), looks like the Inula 'Racemosa', behind with the big leaves, is going to be a monster this year I've never seen the leaves so big!!! its said it can get to 8ft I've had nearly 7ft up to now :-)
Thanks Paul :-)
Thats a shame Karen I wouldn't be without this :-)
