I suspect this is a Miscanthus but does anyone know what species + variety it actually is?

It grows to about 5', maybe 6' in a good year, presumably depending on the spring rain. (It's definitely shorter this year.) After it flowers in mid-June, the flower portion gradually closes up so that by end-July they're as they are in Pic 2. By mid-Aug the thin tubular stems have turned brown also. It stays like that through the winter.

It's not a Miscanthus, but it looks for all the world like a Muhlenbergia. I've never heard of those being available in the UK, though.
